Photographer Stan Raucher’s ‘Metro’ series of subway photos capture travels on public transit around the world, showing how alike human beings are, no matter the country.

Raucher captures the images of people going about their daily commutes with an SLR camera and although it might seem like people might take notice of a large piece of photography equipment like this, the people he captures in his series hardly seem to notice.

As surly as some people can seem on the subway, Raucher has an eye for photographing telling moments. He describes that “glimpses of the human condition emerge as individuals interact with one another and their surroundings.” Truly, the black and white image series will have you paying more attention for moments like these the next time you get onto public transit.
