A street photography project created in response to the Corona Virus pandemic. This is a straight in camera double exposure with no additional post production or manipulation apart from colour correction. Each photograph is a scene that relates to the corona virus crisis combined with an image of nature, clouds of greenery, that gives us the promise of brighter days to come. The nature of the images are referential to the surreal times we live in.
