New Delhi: 

The pandemic and the ensuing lockdown have forever changed the world and the way we live. Once unimaginable, deserted streets, closed offices, educational institutions, and markets became the hallmark of the lockdowns that were imposed across the globe to combat the deadly virus that snuffed lakhs of lives. From lonely moments to playful ones, from empty roads to desolate shopping malls and cinema theatres, people across have used the camera to capture life during corona times. Ahead of World Photography Day, here is a look at some of the snaps.

Empty streets

Nothing shocked us more than desolate streets during the lockdowns. From highways to alleys in localities, not a human was to be seen roaming around.

Migrants

The visuals showing migrant labourers struggling to reach their homes were some of the most emotional and impactful moments from the lockdowns.

Festivals

Lockdowns were eased to a great extent across states during the festive season but sanitisation and masks continued to be the rule of the day.

Mass Cremations

The most heartbreaking photos came when mass cremations took place in Delhi. The daily count of covid deaths was still on the rise and cremation grounds turned into a hellish sight.
