During the quarantine we all lived and experienced different moods caused by isolation, not being able to go out and distance with loved ones. But, if we stop for a moment to reflect, there was not a moment like the one of lockdown during which we felt so close to each other. We could say that isolation created something special, a sense of belonging to something greater. Photographer Michal Zahornacky thought about it all very carefully and decided to represent this feeling with the “Close” project.
The photographic series addresses and analyzes the human situation through architecture. The union that has been created between people is represented through buildings, palaces, houses, windows that multiply endlessly, creating patterns in which there is no space for solitude, or isolation, but the individual elements merge into one big reality.
“CLOSE manifests actual situation when we were forced to close our doors, stay home. It made us come CLOSE together – as a humanity, family, friends and ourselves.”
