What we did
During the March 2020 global lockdown, photographer Federico Marin began developing a photographic - installation project that utilised common household objects. One photo a day for 54 days of quarantine. He asked us to put together the publication.
Virus Diary was born.
This editorial project translated perfectly to the newspaper format, which was also a clear reference to current events. The front page consists of an iconic representation of the virus: a graphic element invades and alters the page, a red spot spreads over the title and deliberately making it unreadable and distorting the graphic grid. Inside, each of the 54 photos is displayed over a full page, giving them maximum visibility.
A limited edition, Virus Diary has appeared on the social media pages of noted international magazines and cultural organizations.
