Though it may not always seem that way, travel is one of those daily unifying forces that make us love living in a big city. As German-born photographer Katrin Koenning, whose work we recently spotted over at My Modern Met, puts it, ”By fate, destiny or chance, strangers are thrown together for a short while, forced to share an intimate space. There is a quiet comfort in sitting back and watching the world fly by.” In her series Transit, she photographs ordinary moments of travel — whether her subjects are engaged in long trips or short, watchfulness or sleep — and captures something essential and universal in those planes, trains, and automobiles. Click through for a few shots from Transit, and then be sure to head over to Koenning’s website to check out even more of her work.
