Another Subway Artist

I just came across the website of photographer Bill Sullivan who photographs sequences of people in the context of the same situation, or device, and then does large scale installations of the photographic series. One of those series is New Yorkers coming through the turnstyles at the entrance of the subways. All of his subject were photographed without their knowledge, as he stood by his tripod and pretended to read a magazine! Viewing them in sequence, as he has them laid out on his website really is an amazing experience, and the array of faces and expressions that he captures is amazing. One note of interest in this series is how dated some of the subjects look. The series is dated 2004, but some of these people are wearing fashions straight out of the 70's! So much for being the most fashionable city in the world.
