Subway Portraits

The subjects are unaware of being photographed. We don’t know these people, what they do, or what job they have, or where they’re going. All we know about them is this moment in a subway car. This mundane aspect of life where people are crammed into each other, bored, tired from their labor and escaping from reality by reading or playing games on their devices, staring off; wanting to forget. Waiting for their destination.
