Gazing unflinchingly at things for a long time (1)

In his book Subway Love, Nobuyoshi Araki gives his understanding of the essence of documentary as: "To gaze unflinchingly at a thing for a long time."

Inspired by this book by Araki-sensei, I really enjoyed taking documentary photos of people in the trains and subways and I think the results are really rewarding. I will be posting more of these this month.

Camera: Pentax MZ-3, lens: Sigma 28-300mm - 1:3.5-6.3
