Chiang Mai During Pandemic
Chiang Mai is a city well known for its mixture of traditional Lanna culture and modern amenities.
It is a paradise for all kinds of visitors.
During the Covid-19 crisis the city is in lockdown and the tourists have disappeared.
Non essential businesses are shut and the economy is suffering.
One common sight is citizens lining up for food handouts.
City streets are quiet during the day. They are deserted and eerie at night as a result of the curfew.
" I, as a local born and raised in Chiang Mai have never experienced an atmosphere like this. "
With this photo essay I document my city, Chiang Mai, during the Coronavirus pandemic.
