This image was made last summer at the Bedford stop on the L train platform in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It evokes the latent antipathy by the emerging political class against all-fashion-no-content-Williamsburg-hipsterism.

This was taken last summer while I was in NY on some student summer exchange program. I was fascinated with all city had to offer, which of course included subway that took me all over the city...I've spent hours and hours there, met some people, listened to quite good bands, heard so many stories (eardropping ooops!) and even saw some art like that one in the picture. I can't recall the name of the artist but I believe the serie of his work called Underground life.

My mom was very ill and unable to go outside for the last two years of her life .That day I was on the way to the hospital and I wanted to take a little bit of the outdoors with me. It began to snow as I waited for the train.

This is one of the photo I made during my project. Wpisz tekst lub adres witryny albo przetłumacz dokument. unfortunately it wasn't shoot in NY becouse, of course, whole project was born in Poland, Cracow. But i think that public transport is similar all around the world.

Few words about my project:
We are traveling every day, all our life, each every day. By buses, trams, metro, planes. Public transport became a part of our life. Inside the vehicles we heve a companion -- the other passengers. We always see them but we almost never think about them. Why? They are the same person as we are, with their problems, with their lives and jobs. When i was making my tram project i was trying to show how focused they are.
The trip to work is not just a moving from point A to point B. It's preparing to another hard day. Moment of silence before time of loud. It's like when you are in a tram you are not actually at home, but also not yet at work. It's a place where you always have your free time.

I took this photo on the summer of 2011. It was my first time visiting New York, I'm from Mexico, and I realized right away that the subway is a big, hot, melting pot of the different cultures, colors, forms and scents that make New York the great city it is.

I shot this photo in the 79th Street IRT Station on the Upper West Side. Before the subject stepped into the frame, the play of light and dark caught my eye. The descending passenger carrying his brief case echoed film noir and seemed an apt visual metaphor for the "If-you-see-something-Say-something" paranoia of our City and our Country.

This photo was taken in the 1990"s on the number 1 IRT train.

The image underscores the fact that you see endless fascinating faces everywhere in NYC. The subway is a place of close proximity and a place of curious "interiority." We stay in ourselves but we look, we look, all the time.

In a city that never sleeps, there is that daunting hour when subway carts become merely empty. As they carry passengers to their destinations to the hypnotic rhythms of the rails, the City above ground is greeting the sunrise.

Something about the name of the station 'diagonal' and the boy standing alone. In hindsight, shouldve been clever and shot it on the diagonal.......:)

Taken with iphone hipstamatic, John S lens.

[Doesnt say anything about New York as it was shot in Barcelona :) ]

This photograph is a part of the series done to showcase the daily routine of NYC filmmaker. The project focused on documenting this unique and talented person whose inner intimate world is reflected and merged and hence invisible in the public arena as an individual.
