Curfew in Antwerp

To stop the second wave of the Coronavirus pandemic a general curfew was issued for the entire province of Antwerp. Between 11.30PM and 6AM it was forbidden to go outside. Bars had to close at 11PM. The curfew was suspended at the end of August.

During the first week of the curfew I wandered through the desolate streets of Antwerp and made a series about this weird period.

A man is waiting for the elevator to take him to the pedestrian tunnel under the river Schelde in central Antwerp.
A couple sits on a balcony in the Korte Koepoortstraat in central Antwerp on the first night of the curfew.
Historical houses at the Grote Markt in central Antwerp on the first night of the curfew.
Closed brothels at Villa Tinto in the red light district on the first night of the curfew.

An Unexpected Lesson in Joy

For two months I photographed my life with my wife and twin daughters at home in Ranst, a village near Antwerp, Belgium. Every day I posted one photo from his “Corona Diary” on social media. And now there is the book. “An Unexpected Lesson in Joy” is an intimate photo diary that slowly meanders between uncertainty and joie de vivre.

14 March 2020. A strange calm descends upon the land. The virus keeps everyone inside and paralyses public life. The rat race grinds to a halt. We don’t know what’s coming our way. With the prospect of a long-term quarantine, I start a diary. I photograph familiar things: my home, my family. In this reduced world there is time, there is silence. And then spring comes.

An Unexpected Lesson in Joy – Nick Hannes
Self-published in collaboration with The Falabella Stable
104 pages, 49 colour photographs
Soft cover, 16x23cm
English/Dutch
ISBN 9789464072068
€22 + shipping – available in my webshop

1€ per sold book goes to Doctors Without Borders to support the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Printed at die Keure, Bruges
Billie and Suzanne, the main characters of the story, are holding the first copies.
In times of distress we realize what really matters. And what doesn’t.
A week already. Every day is like Sunday. No cut-through traffic in our street during rush hour. Even the murmur of freight traffic on the motorway down the road has faded.

Corona diary

With the prospect of a long stay at home due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus, I decided to start a visual diary, in collaboration with the newspaper De Standaard. I’m not going anywhere. I photograph my familiar surroundings in the village of Ranst (Belgium) and the three people I live with: my wife and my twin daughters Billie and Suzanne.

Saturday March 28: Billie and Suzanne are entertaining the cat with a dead rat.
The roof of the greenhouse has finally been repaired. The previous one could not withstand storm Ciara. Anja is sowing peas.
Sunday April 5: Night falls. Strange how busy the days remain, despite all the cancelled activities. Time flies as usual.
