The documentary project is called 一个人城市, which translates to One Person City, and it began from a place of curiosity—”a curiosity to see how a sleepless, major international city would be react to uncertainty.”

“The result is emptiness filled with fear,” says the photographer. “My experience living in Shanghai during the coronavirus outbreak, and seemingly many others, is isolation. It is more than people avoiding areas they think will be crowded, it is people not leaving their homes entirely.”
