Tokyo Subway Dreams

by Vivien Park

I've been thinking a lot about the idea of transition lately, in particular our times in transit. So when I came across these ethereal photographs by Michael Wolf, I was immediately drawn to his ability to capture the moments when time seem to pass by at a different speed. Trapped in an in-between world, the expressions on these commuters are of loss and longing. What are they dreaming of? Who are they dreaming of?
