I never took the subway until I came to Vancouver; so i fell fascinated on trains. I’ve always had the thought that taking the train is like a short journey, bringing you from this side to another. Maybe there is somebody waiting for you upon your return, or waiting to meet you at your destination.
I photographed people on the skytrain last semester; however, after i finished that project, i still felt that i hadn’t explored enough. It became my motivation to keep people-watching. I ask myself: “where are they going?”, “what will they do”, and “is this a pleasure ride, or simply a means of transportation to and from work”
I recently looked at a collection by philip-lorca dicorcia. It left me impressed and excited! Dicorcia’s work inspired me to capture facial expressions and to show the mood after the subway trip. This is what i want to convey to the viewers.
