The global pandemic came suddenly and caught us unprepared, life in Slovakia almost stopped and only very slowly it starts moving again. I portrait in a veil, the respondents also have it, I miss non-verbal gestures, smiles and normal communication when taking photos. My glasses are still foggy, the world around me now looks completely different. I think that is where space is created for photographers and artists in general to capture what is happening around them. Pandemic – a non-pandemic, you need to wear gloves, a veil, a disinfectant and choose to take pictures of Roma settlements in the north of Slovakia, volunteers who test at a hospital in Bratislava, to capture the daily life of people in cities. The images that follow us will tell us how we lived at a time when the virus was invading our lives.
