Photographer Tamara Merino takes a self-portrait with her son Ikal at sunrise during their first week of quarantine. Santiago, Chile, 25th March 2020. The world today has given us a pause; a life without haste, without pressures, and without excuses. For more than hundred and forty days we were locked in a confined space. My days consist of breastfeeding, napping, changing diapers, playing, loving, and repeating. Deep down, I feel that quarantine is like motherhood: an endless spiral of loneliness, isolation, unanswered questions, anxiety, reflections, and hope. I see these emotions as a neutral feeling, neither negative nor positive. They are simply new. I spent this quarantine with my mother. Together, we did the daily exercise of accompanying, guiding, and caring for ourselves. This timeless period has allowed me to portray the symbiosis between my son, my mother, and myself while living under one roof in total lockdown, with limited exposure to the outdoors.
