Homebody, 2021, black and white photograph, captures the human capacity to adapt, to be resilient, showing the boredom, fatigue, and loneliness we felt during the COVID-19 pandemic, spending endless hours in front of computer screens, and exercising in the same space. Carla observes “the so-called new normal is a dramatic shift and transformation of our daily lives. We shifted to remote working, digital education, physical distancing, home deliveries, lack of socialization, excessive use of plastic, the economic crisis, and much more”.
Carla di Luca is a chemical engineer from Argentina and works at the Institute of Materials Science and Technology Research (INTEMA) in Mar del Plata. Ten years ago, she took up film photography as an homage to the slowness we lost in modern life.
