Stories of daily loneliness #9: airports by d-s-foto Stories of daily loneliness #9: airports by d-s-foto
A few years ago airports meant for me departure for the holidays, being with your friends (or your girlfriend) and fly to some exotic destination. All around you had a magical aura, mystique, but also glittering and sparkling: huge advertising floors and shiny.
Now I spend more time at airports, most of my time there is spent alone, walking through the corridors that go from one terminal to another. Huge waiting rooms full of people bent down to look at the screens of their smart-phone.
When I look around my perception of loneliness is amplified and I get the impression that airports are enormous cathedrals of alienation ...

The three pictures are taken in Amsterdam airport (Schiphol)

Alcuni anni fa' per me gli aeroporti significavano partenze per le vacanze, trovarsi con gli amici (o con la propria ragazza) e volare verso qualche meta esotica. Tutto aveva un'aura magica, mistica; ma anche glitterata e sfavillante: enormi pubblicità pavimenti e luccicanti.
Ora passo molto più tempo negli aeroporti, la maggior parte del tempo lo passo solo, camminando per i lunghissimi corridoi tra un terminal e l'altro. Enormi sale d'attesa piene di persone chinate a guardare gli schermi dei loro smart-phone. E' allora la mia percezione di solitudine si amplifica ed ho come l'impressione che gli aeroporti siano enormi cattedrali dell'alienazione...

Le tre foto sono state scattate a Schiphol, l'aeroporto di Amsterdam.
