Presented during the portfolios reviews of the Łódź Photo Festival in Poland, this photographic work underlines the singular confinement of the family of a photographer who was able to enjoy the fresh air of the Spanish countryside.
If Irimina Walczak is of Polish origin, she likes the idea of being on the move anywhere and prefers to think of travel than to define herself from a particular place. During lockdown due to the global coronavirus pandemic, she and her family, aboard a motorhome, were forced to pull over in a corner of the countryside in the middle of Spain.
These 95 singular days, at the edge of the fields and of a warm nature were captured by the camera of Irimina Walczak who has the art of magnifying the rays of a soft sun, giving her and her family a tranquility. in the flow of life, securing something of an almost impossible Eden today.
“ Through this work I aim to make visible an experience of going through the Covid-19 quarantine far from a large city, in a rural area, in which contact with nature brings caress, but tension is enhanced by human absence, both visual and audible”, says the photographer.
