Clay Patrick McBride’s “Third Rail”


“My camera reports less about how the subway looks than it does about how this fearful space feels. The photographic frame becomes a kind of prison for our uneasy consciousness. Travelers are deformed as they are captured in my 35mm cells and crushed by the weight of the world. Witnessing the mass of people robbed of their identities; my camera turns them all into phantoms”.
