At The Metro is a collection of images that I gathered from almost three years of photographing the streets.
These are fragments, bits and pieces, things that i believe represent me as an individual and the very society I live in – moments that are sometimes familiar, other times funny, strange, surreal, witty or even profound.
This project is more of a personal exploration allowing me to understand, be critical and to see past the banalities, the indifference, the rush, the consumerism, the politics, the paranoia and all the things that new media is making us digest. It is my attempt to create a certain metaphor that may somehow show the bigger picture – one that tells the story of a progressive, fast changing society, and how we place ourselves in it regardless of where we’re coming from.
