Contingency Plans – Covid 19

For the past month I worked together with friend and journalist Raffaele Panizza on a photo essay titled Contingency Plans, about companies across Italy that promptly converted or adapted their production lines to respond to the Covid 19 outbreak. This body of work was supported by covid19visualproject.org, an ongoing permanent archive of the Coronavirus pandemic and its impact on people’s lives around the globe. We were granted access to emergency productions, makers’ small labs and witnessed extensive shifts of voluntary workers, productions lines that expanded their limits through the collaborations of military and civil engineers – working together to produce strategic and life saving goods. These are stories of a country that was able to never really stop.
