Trapped Passengers

The idea of photographing people looking through windows has always been one of my favourite. You are photographing; essentially framing your view of someone whose view is also framed. The window distorts; the lens distorts. It's easier to identify with the subjects in these photos.

Andrew Miksys
is from Seattle and shot a series of people looking through bus windows in Lithuania. Michael Wolf is from the States too, studied at UC Berkeley and the University of Essen in Germany, and shot a series of people trapped Tokyo's subway cars. It's interesting to see that even though Miksys' bus passengers aren't nearly as squashed as Wolf's, they too look trapped, worried.

Do you know any other photographers who shot whole series through window panes?
