Under Lock is a documentary landscape photography project fielded between February and April 2021. during lockdown, with mobility severely limited to day trips and confined to the Madrid Region.
Madrid is a rich region, but the work evidences a lot of inequality, abandonment and poverty. It is a reality of which I was only marginally conscious and does not make it my kindest work. But there is still some kind of strange beauty even in the harshest images.
I tried to keep a distance, but it has brought a lot of sadness.
