Abstract:
This project considers the lives of seemingly anonymous passersby on public transport in various cities around the world. These stories deal with love; loss; the manifestation and transcendence of souls; growth; coming of age; coming into connection with oneself, as well as the world. The following collection is ultimately aimed at encouraging each reader to pause and consider other lives that often seem inconsequential.
