Fear on the Transport
The transit photos are made in the spring of 2020 in Sofia, Bulgaria. The first two months of the pandemic were total chaos. The city was closed and leaving it was not allowed. Most people were very afraid and they used everything to protect themselves. The public transport was one of the places were gathered more people and maybe the place most common to transmit the virus.
