Thiago playing with a knife while his father is embracing him on their thirty-second day of self-isolation due to Covid-19 pandemic at the main entrance of a temporary home in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico on April 15, 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 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 coronavirus pandemic.
