My name is Roc, I am from Barcelona and I did my Volunteer program in Innsbruck during one year. In this post I will show you how the strangest year in our lives looks through my camera. I will show the feeling I was having from the start until the end of my year. I was working in a culture center called Die Bäckerei Kulturbackstube as a Graphic Designer and helping in the events and maintenance of the building. Working in this place gave me freedom to express myself and develop my design skills, but most important the freedom I had to create memories of a weird year with lots of up and downs.
When I arrived to Innsbruck I had the chance to discover the city and create a group of friends. I had the opportunity to work hard and meet new people, time to party and visit the beautiful surroundings of the city.
After few incredible months, the lockdown started and everything became more difficult. Less work, less friends meetings and less visits to the mountains. At this point my creativity went down together with my emotions. The best way to show it is with black and white photos from the few I could take during those days.
Finally, after those bad months of some darkness, with new regulations and positive development of the pandemic, I started seeing some light and feeling positive again, working in some motivating projects and looking for my future, being creative again.
