Spain – 

Madrid’s Atocha station was formerly known as Mediodía (Midday), as it was the city’s Southbound railway hub. This is the location where Photography feature – David Hornillos worked between 2011 and 2014, during the central hours of the day.

Mediodía presents an enveloping world of orange brick bathed in a vibrant light that irresistibly draws in and traps all living beings like a dragnet.

With the colour orange in a leading role, David’s work faces the viewer against this brick wall, drawing him into the atmosphere of a stifling and hypnotic mental state.
