Bus Passengers


“Bus Passengers” is a series of video portraits of passengers on the bus at night, filmed openly from the sidewalk as buses moved up Broadway in New York City. Each portrait frames a single passenger, staying with them until the bus pulls away. The finished piece juxtaposes two sequences of portraits together, creating a filmic illusion that reconstructs the city into an uncomfortably intimate version of itself. Strangers are pulled in close, becoming foils for internal projections of repulsion, desire, sympathy, and allowing first impressions to be corrupted over time.
