The Commuters

 

For the last 4 months I have been commuting by train to my office, after 18 years it has been a wonderful change. One of the wonderful parts of this process is the many people that you interact with and the many faces and stories that you see.

In the last few weeks I have been guided by shadows in my mind of the some of the profile sketches that I have seen by my Uncle Peter Vincent and some of the Polish street sketches of Bruno Shultz and wondering on how I could bring them to life as photos. This is my first swing at it. In my minds eye I had seen them as highly grainy B&W photos, but when one of the subjects has green hair, you make adjustments.

Special thanks to my three subjects today. Which I only know the name of one of them.
