Street photography in the time of Covid-19
Azerbaijan has been under virtual lockdown since March 24, when the government strictly limited public movement in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
For weeks, the residents of capital Baku have been largely stuck at home. They are allowed to leave for essential trips--like going to the grocery store or the pharmacy--but need permission first.
As a result, the streets of central Baku, which normally buzz with activity, have fallen silent. Photographer Emin Mathers used his regular walks to the grocery store to document how his fellow Bakuvians dress during their precious moments outdoors during the time of Covid-19.
