Thiago jumping in his inflatable pool on his thirty-third day of self-isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic at a temporary home in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico on April 16, 2020. Photographer Benedicte Desrus explains, "This pool means a lot for a child used to play outside and brings him freshness as its 42 degrees Celsius outside." 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.
