On 26 July 2020 Alex Llovet landed with his wife and two daughters in Bristol, UK. Because of COVID-19, a few hours earlier the British government had imposed a fourteen-day quarantine on citizens from various countries, including Spain.
Llovet took all the images in this work during his confinement in an old isolated house in the middle of the woods in Cornwall, an idyllic place where his parents-in-law live. With his camera, the author questions the limits between reality and fiction, and manages to capture our most intimate fears and hopes arising from this global crisis, sublimating the everyday life of his family to reveal realities beyond appearances.

In his own words: "In a context as dystopian as it was disconcerting, the act of taking photographs became a poetic refuge from which to palliate the effects of the lack of freedom, because even paradise can become a prison if you are forced to remain in it".
