Thiago sitting on his two-wheeled scooter in an empty structure on his twenty-fourth day of self-isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic in his neighborhood in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico on April 7, 2020. Photographer Benedicte Desrus says, "With this pandemic and his school closed, my son is experiencing big changes. He hasn’t seen another child for weeks now. I wonder how he will remenber this time in a future.” Thiago, 3-years-old, is the son of the photographer. He was documented as part of a project titled “When I grow up” about a child growing up on quarantine, away from other children and from the outside world, during the coronavirus pandemic.
