Waking up in a world where we’re forced to limit social activity and stay at home isn’t something most of us have had to experience before. The initial reaction to something so abrupt is to feel uncomfortable, but after a while we have to start looking inwards; observing what is left around us, and what really matters. Marie Absolonovaa women’s shoe designer from a small town in Czech Republic shares a part of her home that she has found solace in during this period.

I’ve been quarantined at my parents’ house, that’s where I took this portrait of me and my daughter in front of my dad’s painting and my mum’s ceramic work.
Being isolated helps us nurture the spaces around us and find meaning in the little things that’ll make an otherwise common wall space feel like home. This opportunity to spend time at home may cause us to gravitate towards certain spaces for comfort or sentimental reasons, it’s important we’re vulnerable enough to allow ourselves find these spaces.

Marie’s photograph in her parent’s home is telling of the sentimental value that parts of our homes can hold within our hearts. It shows how being in a safe space with the right people make it easier to experience love in its purest form. Marie also shows us the importance of family at times like this and the irreplaceable bond between a parent and their child.
