The New York Times published a photo story (open the link in a private tab to avoid the login-wall) with photos of public places around the world in times of COVID-19. The emptiness in these pictures is on the one hand magical, but also somehow frightening. A virus has actually managed to stop the world.

These images are haunted and haunting, like stills from movies about plagues and the apocalypse, but in some ways they are hopeful.
