Disasters Like From A Movie

Two disasters in New York, with the Emirpe state in view. In The Day After Tomorrow, a Hollywood blockbuster about climate change, New York is submerged by a catastrophic flood. The other photo was taken on 11 September 2001, the day the world watched the World Trade Center towers crumble after two hijacked planes crashed into them. It almost seemed like a movie. Ironically, when reality hits hardest, we start referring to things we've seen in films to cope with the situation.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
