London Midland Railway, from the series Passage

College/University: Westminster University
Course Level/Title: MA Photographic Studies

This project is inspired by the artist's personal experience following the enlargement of the European Union at the start of the millennium. Milcho Andreev photographed a series of landscapes to include transport links, commercial yards and environmental service plants in the city of Birmingham. These locations are depicted at a time when many migrant workers are beginning or ending their day. The city vistas beyond suggest an ambiguous reading of what ‘better life’ might be on offer in the UK.
