Jerry Russo at the Boston City Hall Mayors Gallery

The great photographer, Walker Evans, shot photographs of people on the New York City subway system between 1938 and 1941 using a camera painted black and hidden in his coat. Thanks to the iPhone, I am attempting to follow in Evans footsteps by photographing people on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) buses and subway trains since 2013.
