About 1 year ago the world stopped, the streets were deserted, we isolated ourselves. Science fiction, from the future dystopian apocalyptics of Cinema, became our reality: our “Dystopian Present”.
These images were taken in early August 2020 and remembers our own bubbles, we as survivors, the future and the crossroads that we will have to face and keep going. We molded the reality with our hope. Art is able to humanize us, raise awareness, unite, save. In difficult times, more than ever we need to dream. We need to resist. We need lightness, beauty, culture and art. After all, Art is Utopia.
