Vanessa Vercel - Photographer
Born in Paris and a photographer for 20 years, Vanessa was lucky during the confinement to be commissioned by her agency and to be able to travel around the capital in order to immortalize this unprecedented period.
The month of March 2020 was a unique experience for all of us. Paris emptied of its tourists and pedestrians. An abandoned city, deserted but which appears under Vanessa's lens of a breathtaking beauty, as never seen before.
For this reportage, she chose to work in black and white to add a little more intensity to her already dramatic images.
"It feels like the end of the world," she says.
