Starting point for the series “Passengers” was an observation Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer made at night at a bus station while travelling through Poland. For a moment, the passengers on an old bus, obscured behind stained, ice-covered windows, in the pale light of the bus station had the appearance of figures in a painting. Travellers, fallen out of time.
Tired, lost in thought, their faces drawn by sadness or lit up with joy – so close and yet distanced behind the glass.
Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer have preserved those quiet,
fleeting moments in their series “Passengers”.
