"I’ve been cycling around town the past 2 weeks to document our city the way we’ve never seen it before. Sure, there were times when we were wondering how it would be without all the people, all the tourists, but never realising we would ever experience such a thing in our lifetimes…
Until now, March 2020. The city is empty. And I have to admit, I have mixed feelings about this. It’s very quiet and peaceful, it feels like the city can finally take a deep breath and relax. And you get to see, feel and hear it’s true beauty. Yet on the other hand it’s eerie, uncertain. And I'm thinking about everybody who’s directly and indirectly affected by this unreal situation. Something that was, until a few weeks ago, only happening in movies. "
