    The People on the Bus - Gallery Show

    The People on the Bus - Gallery Show

    I will be having my first gallery show this Friday, January 10th, in Chicago, IL, at the Rangefinder Gallery, 300 W. Superior Street, Suite 202 (Tamarkin Camera). There will be an opening reception from 6-9pm. Photos will be on display the 10th through February 13th.

    Artist Statement

    I see my work as documenting a journey; my journey, the journey of others. This ongoing project started with nothing more than an iPhone and has continued through several different cameras. When I began taking pictures of people on the bus and documenting my daily commute, I frequently wondered where the people came from and where they were going, what their stories might be. If I could, I would photograph many moments from their day. But I couldn’t. I was left with captured moments from transient encounters.

    In making a photograph, there is the photographer, the subject, and those viewing the results; each with their own story. Photography for me is about storytelling—whether proposing a story, showing a snippet from a larger story or telling the whole story. In this series, I go beyond typical street photography by photographing in a more intimate space, on the bus. Photos are taken from a perspective that draws the viewer into seeing what I saw when the shutter clicked.

    Michael: Good luck with the show and thanks for sharing, particularly the linked portfolio. A great compilation with #9, #14 and #21(!) being my personal favorites.
    Best regards - Hermann

    The show was great! I was happy with the turnout considering it was a steady downpour outside.

    Thank you again for the 'Likes' and comments!

    Pictures will be up until the middle of February! Check it out if you get a chance!
