The Corona pandemic brought public and private life to a standstill within a few days. Much of what we took for granted has been suspended indefinitely.
This series was created from March 16 ā€“ 20 in my district Neckarstadt. Two days before, all events were cancelled and all cultural institutions, restaurants and bars were successively closed. People were asked by the authorities to maintain "social distance". Initially as an appeal, then through concrete measures.
The series traces the chronology of events. When we look back today to the beginning of the crisis, it seems like another world.
