Thiago is wearing a mask during a virtual meeting on Zoom with his classmates and teachers, to celebrate the end of the school year during his confinement due to COVID-19 pandemic at a temporary home in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico on July 3, 2020. Photographer Bénédicte Desrus says, "With this pandemic and his school closed, my son is experiencing big changes. He has barely seen another child for months now. I wonder what the psychological effects of social distancing will have on him during his formative years and how he will remember this time in the 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 CIOVID-19 pandemic.
