Reacting to this, municipalities, public spaces, and other services have shut down, leaving the people to self-quarantine themselves inside their homes. Like in Budapest, the photographers set out on the streets to photograph objects in a setting that’s unusual to these often-frequented landmarks. The old town of Krakow isn’t an exception to this consequence of the pandemic.
