Like a huge teeming anthill where the inhabitants carry out their everyday functions like cogs in a machine.
The subjects of my photographs are young people who left the provinces and moved to the capital for diverse reasons. For them that means new surroundings, a different rhythm and different rules of behaviour.
Some feel in their element here, others are oppressed and overwhelmed by the megalopolis.
I met them and put the same questions I ask myself. What do they want from the city? What are their thoughts and dreams, what do they hope for, how do they feel in this environment?
