ARTIST STATEMENT

The subway. Subterraneos. 'Subte' as it's called
in Buenos Aires, a city of constant movement.
It is my primary way of getting around when I visit
Argentina's capitol. My subte station is part of the
first line opened here in Latin America (circa 1913).

The Metro. Known to some as simply 'the train'.
Unique urban experience. It engages all senses
at once. I hoped that the fast film in my camera
would register my vision of vibrant color and motion,
washes of light, with shifting patterns everywhere.

Mass transit. A system now on heightened alert.
New security requires permission to photograph.
Often I just rode the train, complete in my thoughts.
Public transport through tunnels of time and change
to as many private destinations as there are riders.
