Ale Burset, a top photographer based in Madrid, has undertaken a cool personal photographic project during this Coronavirus lockdown.
At the very beginning of the lockdown, Burset started to notice how much the way we communicate has changed. He asked himself what would be the best way to portray people during this time.
“I always love to travel and capture moments,” said Burset. “I was sitting in exactly the same place where I shoot the images for my project every day. I shot the monitor to see what would happen with the texture, and I really liked the result. I realized I could invite people to be photographed in this special moment.”
Burset felt this could be a way of shortening the distance. “That far away was synonymous with close at the moment of the shooting. It was a way to capture moments throughout the world every day. The project was born instinctively, like many other projects I have made. They are not born conceptually. I felt it. I loved it. I shared it with my wife and she liked it from the very beginning. She encouraged me to do it. And here we are. We have been sharing moments of our lives for a month.”
“What I love about this project is the feeling that we are not alone,” he said.
