Pandemic Times is a summary of the health, economic and social crisis that has suddenly changed our way of life. The images range from the first moments in the spread of the virus and the declaration of the state of alarm to the vaccination period in which we are immersed. The photographs show positive and negative, dramatic and joyful moments, which are those that, in essence, also make up human experiences.
The photographs are taken entirely in the province of Ourense (Galicia) and its small city of just over 100,000 inhabitants. Ourense has the highest rate of aging in Spain and is also one of the areas most affected by the aging of the population within the European Union. It has been precisely they, the elderly, the most vulnerable sector of the population, who have suffered the hardest blow from the coronavirus pandemic.
