Bettina Lockemann - State of Emergency


"On Saturday, 14 November 2015, as we were walking through the city, we saw the people selling fruit and vegetables on the boulevard de Rochechouart Paris. They stood around, uncertain what to do. They were not quite ready to pack their perishable goods again. The terrorist attacks had had an impact on them too." This Facebook post by Jan Wenzel, publisher of Spector Books (Leipzig), refers to the day of the Paris terrorist attack in 2015. The État d'urgence, or State of Emergency, affected all who were in the capital at the time. German photographer Bettina Lockemann was visiting the city at the time and spent the day roaming Paris with her camera, recording the oppressive atmosphere in its streets and squares.
