The metro provides an intriguing location to observe the social landscape of urban regions around the globe. Stan Raucher has spent countless hours over the past eight years photographing on metro systems in over a dozen cities across the globe, including New York, San Francisco, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Paris, London, Rome, Vienna, Shanghai, and Delhi. His candid photos of ordinary people, interacting with one another and their surroundings, reveal an intimate glimpse into a variety of human emotions and interactions. These evocative, richly-layered images are like still photographs from a movie or play, and each of the scenes invites the viewer to evaluate the situation and then to generate a unique personal narrative.

At a time when few of the images that we see on a routine basis are honest representations of real life, these photographs open a window to the world that surrounds us, here and now.
