Book shows Lisbon in times of pandemic
See some of the images that show Lisbon empty due to the pandemic caused by the new Coronavirus. A portrait of rare times
Deserted streets, people isolated from others and with masks, habitually populated and crowded areas become stages of silence. The book Cidade Suspensa – Lisboa em Estado de Emergência portrays the capital at a time when the pandemic caused by Covid-19 pushed everyone home.
Authored by Miguel Valle de Figueiredo and Bruno Vieira do Amaral, this work, edited by the Francisco Manuel dos Santos Foundation as part of the Retratos collection, paints these extraordinary times with photographs and reports.
“The city full of life and noise, workers and tourists, gave way to a ghost town, a city suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus”, reads the note accompanying the work and which intends to eternalize this measure in which Portugal and the World immersed themselves.
