Oscar Colorado | Mexico City, Mexico

3,642 people died in 2009 in North America due to the Swine Flu pandemic. On January 16, 2012 I was diagnosed with the H1N1 virus. We photographers always expect something extraordinary happens around us to capture it with our cameras. For 10 days I was isolated in my room hoping that my wife and two sons David and Daniel (3 and 4 years old then) not to  catch the disease. Also I was afraid of also having pneumonia, the most common fatal complication of the H1N1 virus. I survived the H1N1 virus and these photographs are a record of the days of my illness in Mexico City.
