This Bus Driver Photography Captures Overlooked Individuals

Joel Devlin's bus driver photography series captures individuals who we tend to take for granted, despite the integral role they play in our morning commute. He seeks to direct focus back to these under-appreciated workers who ensure we get to work on time every morning.

Devlin worked with 'Go Ahead London,' spending four days photographing their diverse pool of employees. These photographs disprove the myth that transit workers are grouchy, miserable individuals bemoaning the state of their lives -- in fact, most of the images feature genuine smiles.

These individuals keep the city running smoothly, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The series, if nothing else, should inspire you to shoot your bus driver a smile, a wave and -- if you're feeling particularly nice -- a friendly "How are you?"
