This series tells the story of the corona pandemic over 8 seasons. Spring 2020 Nature awakens as the danger of a virus lurks. Everyone is asked to stay in their cage. Cultural and social life comes to a standstill. When viewed superficially, the still lifes appear to be peaceful scenes. However, the images are full of symbols that refer to the coronavirus pandemic and the main events of the season.

Carine Van Gerven, official FEP art photographer from Belgium, takes inspiration from 17th century paintings, like Rembrandt. Carine Van Gerven (b. 1966) studied art and painting. Connecting people through art and creating projects is one of her goals. After her graduation, she became an art teacher in a secondary art school in Overpelt, Belgium. As an artist, she organised several projects and participated in many exhibitions in Belgium and France. Her works were exhibited in Saint-Tropez and Belgrade.
