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.
