Virgen del Rocío
On September 1st I was assigned to a COVID-19 Hospital ward in the infectious diseases ward and while paint was still drying in some rooms and caudilimetros (oxygen flow-meters) to supply oxygen to patients were being installed, I began to work in ciclos (paired shifts) of 12-hour day, 24-hour rest, 12-hour night, 3 days-rest, another ciclo, four days-rest, rinse, repeat. By November, I had witnessed far more deaths than normal over such a short time. The experience has profoundly affected me that I will always carry it with me. The photographic project, is an exercise in processing these experiences through photographic meditation, text, and repetition, an exercise in therapeutical photography. At times I have no words so I make photographs.
