For photographers and authors
“They were grey amongst the pastel coloured houses. The wool made a grating sound as they marched together as clones, leather shoes hitting pigeon poo and old chewing gum. They are unsmiling robots in a metropolis that is so alive. Where is it they go? What place do they belong in because it isn’t here?” (© Mimi Newman, 2017)
