Subway portraits

I ride the subway every morning and the blank stares and emotionless faces are very common on the train. People on the train tend to be reluctant to interaction or conversation with other people. I think Evans approach to taking these photos were in the perfect climate. The winter is when you would see significant differences between a persons emotions in their faces and mannerisms. I appreciate the effort put forth in concealing the camera and capturing people in unsuspected situations and movements. I do see man similarities with people in the photos and people on the train today. People who avoid eye contact at all costs by reading newspapers, looking down out their phone or just looking into a void in general.
