Horgos, Serbia, September 2015
Hungary had just hermetically sealed-off its border with Serbia to stop the continuing „stream“ of refugees on their way to Western Europe. The railway-line between Belgrade and Budapest passes here, next to the Serbian village of Horgos, the external frontier of the EU. The train-connection has long been interrupted, yet, in a completely barricaded borderline, the rails offer the only gap in the barbwire-fence, the only remaining way westwards for thousands of people: A loophole to Europe, just over 5 meters wide. That is where the „portraits from along the way“ come from.
