Commuters Instagram Flip Book Captures One Year on the NYC Subway
Here’s an interesting project by multi-media journalist Rebecca Davis that captures what you might witness while riding the New York City subway over the course of one year. It’s a ‘flip book’ put together using Instagram photos of everything from the bored commuter to the intimate couple.
Since NYC residents spend a good chunk of their time getting from point A to point B using the Subway, Commuters offers a glance into real life in the big city — the kind with a lot more grit and a lot less glamour. To borrow a line from Mashable’s Neha Prakash, it shows “real New Yorkers in their finest form.”
If you want to see more, Davis also put together a Tumblr over the course of the project where you can check out individual shots, including many that didn’t make it into the video.
