“Quarantined”: Looking Back at the Great Indoors
Photographer Osman Özel memorializes his life under government-mandated quarantine on the outskirts of İstanbul with a very short film.
For many who are fortunate enough to stay indoors, next week marks the sixth week of the lockdown. Even for those who still work full-time, the ennui prevails in the day, and at night, dreams are reportedly more intense. Have you already been to a Zoom birthday party? In a world where all your communication takes place over screens, do you feel the digital burnout yet?
Photographer and director Osman Özel, who spent 14 days under government-mandated isolation (and shared his experiences with OMM while there), looks back at his time at a 3300-people capacity dorm-turned-quarantine center with a poignant short.
This video is the third part of Osman Özel’s series, “Notes from the Under Quarant”, published on OMM Journal.
