Travelers

Every now and then I’ll see someone on the subway who is interesting, and I will surreptitiously snap a photo.  Not humorous or mocking or lecherous. Just…interesting.

As I have gathered these photos I began thinking about what an odd experience riding the subway (or any public transit) is: you are voluntarily putting yourself in a confined space with a bunch of strangers, all of whom – like you – are doing their best to avoid any sort of personal contact.  It is public, yet private.  Tedious, yet necessary.
