For each human being, instinctively, we only pay attention to the human world: Crowd, interaction . The noisy and boisterous things we still call everyday life. However, behind that rhythm of life, there are still many other lives that coexist and this is the time when they reveal themselves most clearly.
Many parts of the world have been blockaded for weeks, others for months. And when humans locked themselves in a winter cocoon to try to overcome the deadly corona virus pandemic, other objects spoke out. For example, animals have rushed to invade the streets. And there is emptiness. After that were the majestic architectural works that humans had created for themselves, but now they have their own beauty when they become isolated and lonely.
Below, we invite you to admire the series of photos taken in a special historical moment, when the world has stopped, or at least human activities have pressed the "Pause" button suddenly. This story is only found in fiction works but really is happening!
