Anonymous is a photo series dedicated to the train stations that connect the great American cities. This series discusses the ways we hide from each other while in the closest quarters we find humans in our society. We look at our phones, stare at our feet, put in our headphones--anything to disengage from our neighbors. As a photographer, I've always kept my eyes beating around the train car fascinated by the diversity of each car. Young, old, white, black, domestic, traveler--the train is the most distinct and diverse confluence our society has to offer, while being the place humans disengage the most. I hope this series brings people together in a strikingly polarized America, and World.
It is ok to strike a conversation with the person sitting next to you; for all you know, they might live in the same building.
