Millions of children in Spain, stuck at home since the authorities implemented a nationwide lockdown in mid-March, have been unable to exercise outside, take a short walk around their block, go with their parents to the supermarket or leave their house except for medical reasons. Such measures, the strictest in Europe, have left countless children bored, exhausted and sometimes depressed.

Influenced by classic photographers such as Cartier Bresson, Eliot Ervitt, Dorothea Lange, Brassai, Michael Kenna who really changed the way I see things.
