Photographer Stijn Hoekstra Captures Empty Amsterdam During Curfew

Like many countries around the world, the Netherlands has introduced a curfew to slow down the spread of the virus and since January 23, between 9 p.m. and 4:30 a.m., Amsterdam looks like a ghost city.

When snow covered the capital in February, photographer Stijn Hoekstra went out to capture the unprecedented nocturnal atmosphere.

“The city once so vibrant felt eerie without anybody. I walked for hours during the cold night in which the city was covered with a beautiful white blanket. I knew, and hoped to never find the city like this ever again”, tells the artist.
