Notes from a Moving Train
These photographs are born out of a necessity to pass time. My trips home consist of a more often than not unpleasant two-hour train ride along the North Jersey coastline. The only respite from which lies in the moments existing just outside the train’s windows. At it’s simplest, the view is a distraction but the photographs capture glimpses into other people’s lives that only pure chance allows the opportunity for. The accompanying video fills in the gaps between these moments with the ambient noises and movement that are vital to the experience. The route is unchanging but the fleeting impressions are never duplicated. There is an addicting quality to zooming quickly across my home state, intensely focused on photographing these seconds where my life intersects with that of another’s, which are gone faster than they arrived - it is an endless hunt for the photographic moment.
