    Bruno Alencastro

Photo essay produced using the obscure camera technique, designed by photographer Bruno Alencastro from his apartment in Rio de Janeiro. Through video calls, the photographer directed others to capture life in times of a pandemic. Each with its uniqueness. Achievements and losses. Wishes and privileges. Fears and hopes. What we see portrayed is literally a world upside down, where the window starts to represent the border and the abyss between the outside and the inside world. Freedom and confinement.
