While you’re trying to tune everyone else out on your morning subway commute, artist Dejan Djordjevic is doing just the opposite. Earlier this year, Djordjevic debuted “Subway Series: A Gritty Look at Boston’s Token Traveler,” a collection of straphanger snapshots on Boston’s “T,” and followed it up with an Atlanta version last April. And what should be the next stop? In our opinion, it’s a no-brainer: New York, of course.
Djordjevic, a freelance photographer and a sales and marketing exec at the New York Times Company, started shooting candid photos the old-fashioned way (with his iPhone) of the people he passed on his commute, and whipped them up into a photographic series meets cultural study of just who’s riding the morning train. What started on just a few rails in Boston is traveling: Djordjevic plans to extend his shots throughout the US. Take a look at some of the photos below, and check out his website and facebook for more.
