Photographer Captures Eerily Empty Shanghai During Coronavirus Outbreak

Photographer Nicoco recently embarked on a personal project to document Shanghai during the coronavirus outbreak, hoping to capture the emptiness, isolation, and fear that the virus has wreaked on this once-bustling city.

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.”
