The internets are currently going wild over this footage by photographer Adam Magyar which captures Tokyo’s humanity at what you could call its truest moment – waiting for the train. Using high frame rate photography from the window of a train as it pulls into Shinjuku station (the busiest station in the world) he was able to freeze commuters in what looks like a long, crisp panoramic photograph.
Magyar himself describes it 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.”
Just ignore the guys picking their noses at 4:25 and 7:13.
