Lost couple of weeks the streets of Amsterdam were silent and empty due to a monstrous virus, corona. All of a sudden reality grabbed us by our throat. Our daily life of hard labour and having joy has turned upside down completely. Nothing feels normal. Together we live in a surreal bubble.
As a photographer and not being in total lockdown, I can’t resist going into town. Early in the morning I capture the world without people. It feels as walking in a film set. And so I met these two doves on Dam Square, flying just around the corner. For me the birds are a symbol of hope, a symbol of life after corona. There will be life after corona. We will invent new ideas, business, pleasures to overcome this terrible shock. I am sure of it.
Stay safe folks!
