As a resident of Chicago, I rely on public transportation, especially the bus. All photographs were made on an iPhone during my commute, either from the bus or waiting at a bus stop. The route I most often take is between the Lakeview neighborhood on the city’s north side and downtown Chicago.
For many commuters, the time on the bus is sacred “me” time. For me, it is a time to sit and observe, to pay attention to the city and its rhythms. There is also a sense of anonymity or invisibility as I photograph fellow commuters on the other side of the bus window.
