Distant stares. Expressions of wonder. Moments in thought. Portraits of people on the bus as they ride from point A to point B. In riding a city bus you are on display for all to see. But despite the bus being public space, there is an assumed privacy among riders, including myself. Yet a compulsion to notice without being noticed overcomes me. And a confined, intimate, public space, becomes my studio. And the people on the bus my models.
Inspired by the work Walker Evans produced on the New York subway in the late 1930’s, the ‘people on the bus’ continues what he started and creates portraits of fleeting moments from the unobserved, who unknowingly pose for the unnoticed photographer.
