Commuters (London 2012-2013)

When I was a kid I used to take pictures with my eyes. I would see a moving car coming fast, and turning my head, I would follow the car direction and blink. For a few seconds, the frozen image of the driver would be retained in my brain. I took these portraits in this same way, this time using my camera.
These series are taken on the rail line that links the north and east London suburbs to the financial heart of the city.  Unlike the underground, the windows offer a view to the city and an openness ideal to think. I was interested in their natural state of introspection and distant thought. To me, such moments are full of beauty.
