Quarantined of the World is a photo series documenting people’s experience of quarantine around the globe during Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. The project was born as a creative outlet inspired by the experience of confinement of the artist who interviews and virtually photographs her subjects via video-communication. All portraits include glimpses into the life of strangers. Taken together, these photographs and captions offer a remarkable socio-psychological representation of human behaviour throughout a global pandemic that is changing the course of human history.

To date, 34 people from across the globe have participated in the project which features individuals and families from 13 different countries, including frontline healthcare workers in Italy, an astrophysicist in Poland, and an asylum seeker in Ireland. Quarantined of the World is an ongoing project and Valentina is welcoming participants worldwide; interested parties can get in touch via Facebook, Instagram, email, or www.quarantinedoftheworld.comwww.quarantinedoftheworld.com.

Quarantined of the World is currently being presented as part of WE ARE , an online exhibition from Matriz running May 1st – June 30th.
