Boredom. Anxiety. Hyperactivity. Loneliness. Procrastination. Hope. Doom. In the face of the global pandemic, there is comfort to be taken in the knowledge that all of us are recycling the same rollercoaster of emotions right now.

And one photographer has made it his mission to capture this ethereal stillness as we all stare out of our windows – longing for life before, life after. Far/Near is an intimate collection of photos by Milan-based photographer Giuseppe Vaccaro, taken via Skype and FaceTime, of around 40 models all over the world in lockdown.

Miami, Paris, Buenos Aires, Mexico, Dublin, Dundee and many more are just some of the far-reaching locations, the languid settings (and what we do in them) connect people from all over the world.

Models are pictured tangled under their bed sheets, curled up on grass, some even symbolically reaching out of their tower block windows.

“I think I am committed conveying a message of hope,” explains Vaccaro. “In hard times like these, I wanted to reach out to neighbours from all over the world – which is why I started documenting this ‘togetherness’. I loved ‘entering’ these people’s houses, following their ways, trying to understand their feelings through my lens. Having shot from Milan, it has been really tough, I felt jet-lagged, and had to woke up early or go to bed late. But at the end of the day, I feel really complete, like I have travelled for real. Far/Near bridged all these possible distances.”
