I’m in the midst of reading a book called Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. So far I’m really liking it, as it takes me on a journey to 1930’s New York.
One thing mentioned in the beginning of the book was the 1960’s Many Are Called photography exhibit and subsequent book by Walker Evans. This was a series of candid photographs he took on the subway system in the 1930’s.
I always find imagery such as this fascinating – wondering what the stories and backgrounds are of each of these seemingly everyday, nondescript people riding the subway. Where are they going? Where are they coming from? This is something I often wonder as I ride the subway and am seated across from someone.
I’ve found images from this series online and thought I’d post some that intrigue me.
I’ll let you know how I liked the book once I’m finished. 🙂
