Thiago lies on a concrete porch next to chalk traces of the outline of his hands made with the help of his father on their thirty-eighth day of self-isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic in a temporary home in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico on April 21, 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.
