Cities can feel lonely too

People sometimes feel lonely, but cities can feel lonely too.
We know our cities by their popular places – the places everyone loves to go. There we linger, take photos, meet other people, and awe at historical buildings.
But then there are the “in between” places, the places almost no ones goes. When we do accidentally pass them, we’re on our way to somewhere else.

Now, that feels lonely to a city.

This series is a dedication to those lonely places and the lost souls that – for a short time – inhabited them.
