At first glance, the work of Janus van den Eijnden could justify people's belief that subway workers are miserable individuals who are jaded when it comes to getting people from point A to point B. Yet that couldn't be further from the truth. Instead, the images depict a moment in which the conductor has let down his or her guard and is simply staring off into space or simply lost in a variety of thoughts.
Shot in New York City, Janus van den Eijnden's series encourages people to reflect closer on the person rather than the situation. He states, "What I find so interesting about the New York subway is that it can be a place of total chaos but also of total tranquility." The portraits are quite serene.
