It’s been over 5 weeks since life as we knew it in France was put to a temporary stop, and while it’s temporary, the return to normalcy doesn’t seem to be in sight.
Fortunately, we still have simple daily actions that we can do. These actions were once things we thought of as nuisances but nowadays, these are luxuries that we enjoy each time we get to do them! After all, walking along the Seine or between tall Haussmann buildings on your way to do groceries isn’t so bad, right?
Street photographer Jean-Baptiste Pellerin has captured what daily confinement life looks like in Paris right now. Keep scrolling to see the people who continue showing up for work, the street fashion, Parisians in the middle of their grocery runs, and how they cope with their family and neighbors during this time.
Front-liners on duty
Can you imagine what life would be like if none of these brave front-liners showed up everyday? We’re so grateful to them for keeping the peace, making sure our streets are clean, and for allowing us to still enjoy restaurant-cooked meals!

Parisian Styles in Confinement
There’s no better proof of how fashionable Parisians can be than during the midst of a global pandemic!
You could mistake it for Fashion Week being in town!
Even couples found a way to match under these circumstances.
Even the little kids are killing it with their styles!
Daily Life in Paris
Shopping for essentials
Jean-Baptiste Pellerin also caught these Parisians in the middle of their run for essentials like groceries, bread, and of course, wine!
Walking the Dog
Walking the dog is no longer just a chore, it’s now also considered a big day out!
Being with family and friends
It sounds cheesy but perhaps now more than ever, we realize that at the end of the day, all we need to get by are our loved ones and essentials like food and a bottle of wine.
