In March 2020, when the first case of COVID-19 was detected in Poland, offices sent their employees to work from home. The workers got stuck in suspension between comeback promises and next waves of coronavirus. The work has settled in home for good and home has entered the restricted work space; the space at home has shrunk.

That was my reality too - my life partner suddenly became my home office colleague and lunch buddy. When I changed my job in May 2020, I haven't met any of the team members in 2 years - even though we lived in the same city. I started photographing people from my close bubble. The project shows how photographed families are dealing with work at homes that became their offices for indeterminate time.
