This is a beautifully shot atmospheric public train series.  The lighting is fantastic throughout.  It’s by a photographer named Luca Napoli. I had not heard of him before finding this on YouTube but you can find his work on flickr here.


I’ve always been inspired by photos taken on public transport.  The sense of intimacy in such a small place with such a diverse cross-section of a cities people make for some of the finest street work around.  Photos taken on the New York subway in the 80’s have such a special grit that just can’t be reproduced today.  The combination of grafitti, metal,  tough characters and film just can’t be beat.  I’ve been to New York and I can see it’s appeal, but a lot of that grit has gone, but I could still feel what these guys saw.
