DES|CON|NEXO narra los relatos visuales de fotógrafos alrededor del mundo, sobre las experiencias de conexión
y desconexión entre lo íntimo y público, lo individual o social, lo físico y lo virtual, generadas durante la pandemia.

Advertisements, on the web, in magazines, on TV and even on the street bombard us continuously.

The Covid19 epidemic and the consequent lockdown have also changed the marketing strategies of large companies, which used to occupy the advertising spaces on the facades under renovation of the cities with huge banners.

These spaces are incredibly left blank, empty, without communication even in this phase in which people slowly begin to go out on the street and look out into life.

I took these pictures in Rome, Italy, on May 2020.
