This series attempts to showcase the local CalTrain: a conduit from suburb to city. It is much more than a large, metal tube used for intercity transportation. The train is a culmination of folk: freedom for the teenage spirit, home for the homeless, a timely bustle for the working class, a designated driver for the weekend’s party-goers, and someone’s career and livelihood. Many different stories lie between the tattered seat cushions and the steel cars, strung together by the countless late trains and lost tickets. The images represent a unique micro-ecosystem in which these individual worlds collide into awkward silence as a stranger takes the seat next to you. This balance of space and time is one of the only places where all walks of life will come together.
