"There is a strange thing, Phaedrus, about writing––something that makes it very much like painting. The painter creates things that are creatures, things that seem like living beings, but if you question them, they keep to themselves in a proud silence. It is just the same with written words. They seem to talk to you as if they were intelligent, but if you ask them anything––simply to learn something more about what they are saying––they just go on repeating the same thing forever."
––Plato, Phaedrus, 275d.
Passenger is a meditation on private and public space, interiority and exteriority, human contact and alienation, in a sequence of photographs made in the metro of Kharkov, Ukraine, between 2015 and 2018.
