Thiago counts to three while taking a live class online with Zoom as he continues his homeschooling during the fifth week of his school closure due to the coronavirus pandemic at a temporary home in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico on April 17, 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.
