    Sarah Pabst

On March 20, 2020, Argentina entered a strict lockdown which lasted for several months. From one day to the next, our world had completely changed.
At the same time I found out I was pregnant, but soon after, I lost it. In order to fight against an overwhelming feeling of paralysis, I picked up the camera and began documenting what was around me. My daughter, the few moments within nature that we missed so dearly. Morning Song is a personal project about quarantine, motherhood and love, about shedding light on a loss in difficult times and therefore, about healing.
