The Hatching

The Hatching explores the monotony, the claustrophobia and the vulnerability during the period of lockdown due to the spread of Covid-19. Trough a webcam located on the Pirelli Tower of Milan, Italy, Zanin followed and captured the daily life of a Peregrine Falcon during the hatching. Repetitive pictures of the Falcon works as a metaphor for the condition of millions of people during the period of quarantine – the monotony of days, the isolation, the feeling of claustrophobia – while the image of the eggs in the nest underly the vulnerability of life.
