Walker Evans subway photos portray a everyday commuting. Everyone not in the greatest mood because of how early it is or maybe not enough seats. One of the photos shows a man and a woman waiting for a train, as the person looking at the picture you can guess that it is the beginning of winter because both in the picture have layers of clothing on and hats as well. Evans was always interested in seeing how people really were by capturing them in social situations such as traveling to work. Something that everyone does became something personal because of how candid some of these photos were. The expression on the peoples face who were in the photos look bothered, and off guard, which makes them “candid”.
