Daniel Zvereff: Subways In New York City

Zvereff is a freelance designer, illustrator and photographer. He travels to the far corners of the world documenting his journeys through images and journals.

Last winter I spent the better part of 3 months attempting to document what it is to commute around New York City in the subways. Something that I did not expect when taking on this project was how the experience of riding the trains would become alien to me. I had switched places and was no longer a commuter aboard the train, but an observer. Aimlessly riding everywhere, it gave me a new freedom to just enjoy the train and everything on it. Without my headphones and the anxiety of needing to get somewhere, I was free, free to explore.

The rest of my subway images are now featured in a collaborative effort between two other photographers and me in attempting to produce the printed photo journal “Steady”.
