The novel coronavirus, which infected approximately 4.5 million people in the world between December 2019 and May 2020, brought forth many changes. Many countries took strict measures in this regard. In Turkey, the curfew was implemented on limited days. The city squares of Istanbul, as Turkey's heart and its largest city, remained empty during the curfew. In this series, the real pure state of Istanbul is photographed in complete chaos and silence.
