I am a commuter and these are some of the photographs I shoot every day.

People. I’m afraid of people and his stupidity as I’m afraid of mine. Stupidity is dangerous and it can kill. It can be evil, hostile and gray often. When I’m in the crowd, I am the people: judiging, keeping out, overlooking… so I run away guilty. But It happens that in the same crowd I see who are not gray. Some people are green, someone else is blue or red. And I just feel the need to capture them in a black and white picture to prove that.
