Walker Evans took these photographs in the subway. He used a hidden camera in his coat so the people in the photographs did not know their picture was taken. Walker Evans photographed New Yorkers commuting to work by subway. On his photos we can see that some of the people are worried, some are bored, some are engaged in regular conversation. In our days, if Walker Evans will take photos of the commuters they will look different. No one wears hats, or read a newspaper in the subway. We are all looking at our electronic devices and listening to music. Everyone has a pair of ear buds, and we look lost in our thoughts. No more communication in the subway, people do not look each other in the eyes.
