ABOUT THE SERIES

Modern society is drawn by consumption in order to achieve comfort. One of the key roles in the process of satisfying this need plays the trolley. It acts as a mediator whose principal task is to disburden the shopper at his daily goods-gathering. However, these trolleys are not protected. As all other things they too are affected by privatization, violation or are victims of hooligans. The series of photographs captures the unusual parking spaces, crime scenes, and stops of these trolleys while on their pilgrimage out of the shopping malls. Trolleys are portrayed as stray from their primary habitat, situated in the environment they do not belong to, as handicapped homeless, or as substitute servants of their new employers. They are modern refugees that were forced to leave home. And as the wilderness touched them they became orphans.
