Sami Siva is a Canadian-Indian photographer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, TIME, The Guardian, CNN, Al Jazeera, and The Globe and Mail.
He has shot post-conflict and social-issue stories in Canada, India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Nepal, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, and the U.S.
Siva has been based in Prague since 2016 where he continues to work as a photographer covering Central and Eastern Europe.
He tells us of these photos, “To me, it’s a unique experience to photograph the city under lock down. An eerie experience yet so much beauty that we normally don’t stop and see.”
Editor’s note: Going out to take photos now violates the restrictions put in place in the Czech Republic to lessen the spread of the coronavirus; we ask that our readers continue to stay home and respect the rules of the quarantine.
