Plato's Cave.

An Essay on Modern Blindness.

A city is paralysed: A plague of blindness affects the entire population. They are not blind-blind, "They can only see White". 

José Saramago builds from there one of his most brilliant and disturbing metaphors of our time, Essay on Blindness.​

Made during this pandemic, for this project I've appropriated my own work, in order to construct a Dystopic World, where reality is only perceived through electronic devices.

This photographic essay is an inquiry into the "Seeing but Not seeing dilemma" and the extent to which humans experience reality in the contemporary world, where media is acting as the Cave Plato described in his Allegory, showing us a distorted vision of the real world and contributing to a culture of passive spectators.
