The Daily Commute

(2012)

This photo I took discretely in the metro of Tbilisi (Georgia). But it could have been taken in the metro of any city in the world. No matter how different cities are on the surface, life inside the Metro trains seems the same. Cramped, dark, dank, and yet we seem to find time and place there for short contemplation and daydreaming that we cannot find in the bustling life above. The pace of the city comes to a forced stop, you drift of in thoughts, interrupted by the announcements of the familiar names of metro station and shuffling around of people. How many metro stations do you pass everyday and never get off at, wondering what may be there?
