These images are a journey capturing the diversity of the New York City commuter as they doze through the tunnels, struggling to float between their dreams and reality. The lens has quietly captured the fleeting moments of a silent and solitary human state within a public space that is at times communal and turbulent. In a sense, the subway vessel serves as a transient catalyst to equalize the disparity in humanity. For me, the phrase “An American Dream” conjures up images of immigrants in a new land motivated by hopes of fulfilling their personal aspirations. The subway sleeper illustrates that newcomer who is adapting into the American life. Whether these dreams are realized or not is ambiguous, and many questions remain.
