Thiago playing on a swing in an empty playground due to Covid-19 pandemic in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico on March 24, 2020. Photographer Bénédicte Desrus explains, "It’s hard to explain to a child of his age why there is now no one playing on this playground and why he has to social distance from others." 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.
