Cities can feel lonely too
de Elvira Smit (Pays-Bas)
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.
