S. Jhaveri, Western Artists and India: Creative Inspirations in Art and Design, Thames & Hudson, London, 2013, p. 27
The photograph documents the astonishing movement of people within Church Gate Station, a terminus known for its dangerous overcrowding. The slow shutter speed has blurred the crowds in the foreground and enabled Salgado to capture the immense flow of passengers in a still image. On a local level, this 1995 photograph speaks to the crowded conditions that the station-goers face on a daily basis, but in the context of the wider-ranging Migrations series, it likewise provides a visual commentary on population growth in India and in other cities across the globe.
