´Liberties´ (2020) started when I saw people taking turns to pray on their knees in front of the closed doors of the main cathedral at the Plaza de Bolívar in Bogotá, my photographs show how people inhabit this landmark square through a collection of individual actions related to the pandemic’s social distancing rules. By putting these moments together the idea of a shared landscape materializes as testimony of how this place continues to bring citizens together despite the isolation.
Through scenes taken during the quarantine period, each photograph comes to various definitions of what it means to be one while being part of a larger whole. The personal experience is captured in different moments that account for the belonging, the memory and the local traditions. The series gathers a different strata of the so-called new normal, the characters portrayed are intertwined by their personal gestures in public space, in the midst of social distancing.
