Emptiness - Frankfurt Airport - May 2020

About this series

18th May 2020

After three and a half months in isolation in Cairo, Egypt, we were finally able to fly back from Cairo to Vancouver, Canada, with a 19-hour layover at Frankfurt Airport.

It was the night of May 18, 2020, when we found a place at the airport and tried to sleep. I got out my camera and tripod and was honestly shocked at how empty one of the largest airport hubs in the world was.

I took the opportunity to document our experience during the night at the empty airport. During my walk through empty hallways, empty check-in counters and silent speakers, I met a few other passengers.

It was a strange feeling for myself to walk around and not see a single person. When I look back and see all these pictures, it seems so surreal. I never expected something like that would change the world.
