J 2 Manhattan & Back 24-7-365 Portraits

Vytenis Jankūnas

2018 - Ongoing

New York, United States

My work is about my daily commute from Queens to Manhattan and back. I’m in this perpetual cycle already for 20 years and counting. In a way Subway car became my second home. My portraits of the people on the train are the documents of the daily life in NYC. They are very true and documental, but at the same time they have a 4th dimension – time. Every portrait is composed from 3 different shots, one shot used twice on the bottom and two different pictures used on the top, and they are shot in different time of commute, there fore there is an illusion of moving/traveling trough the time. All pictures are not altered or retouched; they just composed in to 4 image panes using Photoshop. The final result is printed (c-print) on photo paper. Size of the print: 36x40 in. This is a continuous project.
