For his series titled "Stainless", video producer Adam Magyar captured the subway platforms of several stations in several cities across the globe, each with a high-speed camera shot from an arriving train. When played back in slow motion, the result is a hypnotic capture of real life that is almost frozen in time.
Magyar sees the individuals captured in Stainless as:
An endless row of living sculptures brought together by the same subway line, the same direction, the same intention of taking the train to get caught and carried away by the urban flow. All their motions slowed down, they are graceful and stainless, holding their breath waiting for their train to pull into the station.
Here is the section of the video that was shot here in NYC, at the Grand Central / 42nd Street station.
