Behind the Lens: Riding Public Transit with Michael Hintlian : Interesting photographs

Michael Hintlian’s series, “No Transfer: Photographs from Public Transportation,” was created out of the frustration while shooting the streets of Boston, a place he describes as “a difficult city to work in.” From an early age Michael has been inspired by the great documentary photographers Robert Frank and Garry Winogrand. They, along with his professors at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, helped shape his approach to photography, which for Michael is all about capturing the “candid moment.” This series, all taken from the windows of public transportation, is what Michael calls “a simple extension” of that approach.
