You Shall Be Like Us

Milan Centrale / Yashica Mat / Ilford HP5

Again. Since I was here last the station has become a transit area for people fleeing the fighting in Syria. You can see a few of their heads peeking over the balcony. They sit there, forced to watch adverts all day, with a security camera pointed at them. Behind me was a pair of giant billboards for Dolce and Gabbana. At night giant men pull the roof off the station and peer down at the people inside, measuring their response to stimulus, occasionally reaching down and taking some of them to a better place.
