Photo Gallery: People on Buses


Living in New York, we spend a lot of time sitting on buses, on subways, on trains, and in or on other moving vehicles, our heads often leaning blithely against the window, hoping for an Adrian Tomine moment or some other flash of brilliance. Photographer Andrew Miksys, who splits his time between Seattle and Vilnius, Lithuania, takes photographs of people through the windows of buses, capturing moments both private and collective, both melancholy and serene. The faces of his subjects, now doubly behind glass, manage to exhibit everything from boredom to deep despair while their features remain hidden by rain or fog.
