Photographer's Note

I took this photo 13 months ago. Covid-19 was spreading fast into Europe and there was no doubt that soon we would be in the midst of a pandemic whose consequences were still mercifully unknown. As I crossed Medborgarplatsen, the largest square on S鐰ermalm island, I saw this boy alone on the skating rink, only accompanied by pigeons. I thought of him as possibly symbolizing a near future when keeping a physical distance to other persons would be essential.

Nine days after taking this photo I was inside a crowd for the last time to see a Chinese boat delivering a large bridge that is now connecting S鐰ermalm with Stockholm's Old town:

Standing among all those persons I remember thinking that maybe I was doing something very stupid.
