The image of a stairway and a person, just stopped me in my tracks.
The juxtaposition of the tattoo and the arms around the child, made me snap this photo.
This shot is about an ''instant'', catching a secret moment in the caothic daily life of the newyorkers. This picture was taken during my trip in 2008.
this is a shot that tells a lot about NYC. its multiethnical culture, I just got inspired by this in my trip in 2008.
So many cultures underground.
It always amazes me, how sound asleep one can fall on a subway with strangers.
We are all exhausted. All the time.
The photo has been taken during a trip in NYC in 2008. what inspired me was that the woman was steady in the middle of the crowd at the central station and so she remained for a long time. NYC is a city in motion but for an instant you can stop this motion.
This moment made me feel how alone we are in the city.
Harlem....black and white.
It looked just like a storyboard. It says to me...that everyone has a story.
This was shot one night around 11pm a few weeks ago. She was trying to get comfortable, and was having a tough time with it, even trying to shield the light with her naked Barbie. If this was any other city, she would be in the backseat of a car, in a car seat, most likely comfortable. But here, she's in public, doing the best she can.
I shot this early afternoon a few months ago. To me, this image really tells a story, and kind of breaks my heart. I would guess that they are brothers, and one brother takes care of the other. Seeing them make it through the turn styles, really made me realize the hoops we all have to jump through for this weird system / city to work, no matter who you are.
This was taken last year on the 2 train around 9:30am. There wasn't very many people in that car when I noticed this couple poking at one another. I walked and sat across from them, and was able to shoot 10 frames without them noticing. I really think this frame sums it up.
Lady in Red... Beauty in applying her make up, with the harshness of the underworld......

The title is: Looking In Looking Out
it was taken Sept,6th 2011. what inspired me was the intensity of the smile on the mans face inside the train looking out and also the intensity of the man looking inside as if he was looking for someone.. a moment in passing....What it says about New York is that we are all commuters, going some where, coming from somewhere, and in the midst of it all a smile means a lot. Thank you for this opportunity to submit my photograph. Julie
An old favorite from a few years ago: 'street art' in the subway in Brooklyn.
This is the highest point of the entire subway system (coincidentally a few blocks from my apt). The station (Smith St F/G) is now closed for much needed repairs.
There are eight million stories in the naked city ...

Taken last summer. There are lots of "only in New York" sights in the subway, but the more notable ones are those that make you wonder about the lives and relationships of the people you're intersecting with for a brief moment. (Plus, all those clashing fabrics!)
