The global Covid-19 lockdown of Spring and Summer
2020 that had millions of people confined to their homes
made for remarkable photographs around the world.
Cities of Silence shows striking images of more than
60 major cities in lockdown-eerie, yet beautiful
snapshots of otherwise densely crowded spaces. Free of
people and traffic, the pure aesthetics of each site shine
in their original glory: the symmetry of a square or
boulevard, the harmony of a façade, the unfettered
beauty of an empty stretch of beach. A document of an
extraordinary and challenging period, and a reminder of
a slower-paced world, Cities of Silence also offers us
the visual space, and perhaps, clarity, to imagine a better future.
