„All China’s Fast Food Dreams“ – Foto-Projekt über Menschen, die in Fast Food Ketten übernachten

„Beijing, October 2013. Commuters, farmers and workers sleep over a fast-food inside Beijing West Train Station.“

Das Foto-Projekt „All China’s Fast Food Dreamers“ der italienischen Fotografin und Multimedia Storytellerin Sabrina Merolla zeigt Menschen in chinesischen Metropolen, die westliche Fast Food Ketten als Unterkunft für die Nacht nutzen.

There are plenty of well-known foreign franchising fast-foods in every Chinese mega-city. McDonalds, KFC, Burger King – they all arrived in the late 90s and their restaurants bloomed everywhere … During the last decades fast-food restaurants have been witnessing to a revolution of contemporary Chinese families’ structure and life. Proposing cheap American foods and dreams … they have become part of urban spaces for an innumerable mass of people …  But hidden in every anonymous compound of skyscrapers, they have also surged up to an unspoken new role, they have become shelters. Fast food sleepers are a common presence in every fast-food chain in China. Young jobless migrants looking for luck in the megalopolis, homeless grannies left apart from the new society, young students going to the big city for university admission tests, drunk men and women who just do not want to go back home tonight, lunatics and, in general, anybody who cannot afford the price of a cheap hotel room and is looking for a warm night refuge…
