Yesterday's NYT had an article about a cool project. Hopefully, you can see it here (apologies if it's paywalled for you). They sent photographer Mauricio Lima to Paris to shoot many of the locations that Eugène Atget captured around a hundred years ago. Atget shot early in the morning and only rarely included people. The coronavirus lockdown created a rare opportunity to see Paris with very few people today. I found it remarkable how many of the scenes were essentially unchanged from then till now. Check it out.
