The lively city of Amsterdam is my home for ten years already. As a
reportage photographer I felt the urge to capture the impact the pandemic and
its restrictions had to our life’s. Amsterdam, the before covid over touristed
city, has radically changed. So I hopped on my bike to capture ‘still Amsterdam’.
This reportage is part of the Pan-European project Lockdown Europe – showing European capitals in times of Corona through local photographers’ eyes.
The “death” on dam square
Observing “the death” on dam square, still doing his “business as usual” (posing for pictures) without any audience but one other street artist around, was totally absurd.
No fish today
The traditional fisherman, who is standing every day on the Albert-Cuyp market, selling his famous Dutch haring to tourists as well as locals. Not this day.
Red light switched off
FEBO is famous for their super-gross but surprisingly tasty fried snacks, you can directly buy “out of the wall”. Often a life saver after a far too long party… I have never seen this one closed.
No beer today
The stacked chairs of the closed bars are blocking one of the most famous and beautiful canal views we do have in Amsterdam.
Finally safe biking
The bike line behind Amsterdam Central Station totally unknown that empty to me.
