Indian Railways, 1863.

Sunrise is my favorite time to be riding these trains. So few are awake. Those who are are utterly passive and silent. There is only gazing out windows and open doors. There is no conflict, no conversation, nothing to do but be alive, and rattle along with your of car full of souls, your bedroom full of strangers. Sunrise on these trains is an hour of pure being.

Years ago in Rajasthan, when I first began photographing life on the trains in India.

For a brief look at recent work on this project, check out @junglesinparis over the next four days. I'm taking over their feed with recent photographs from travels on the Indian Railways. I'm sometimes including longer captions than usual, to give brief insight into each image.
