Cape Town photographer Jeffrey Abrahams has been recording life in Cape Town under Covid-19 lockdown since 1 April. His pictures tell a vivid story of how the city’s people adapted — or didn’t — to the new rules of living. Some usually crowded places were empty, in others, life went on as usual; for some people, life became even harder as parents struggled to feed their children, old people queued patiently for food, and a brief respite from gang violence ended with the death of a toddler. But there were also happy moments when fast food outlets opened again, domino games resumed, children played and people read their newspapers in the sun.
