Chris Marker- Passengers

Chris Marker-Passengers captures both very private moments between friends or lovers and extremely awkward moments between strangers. The documenting of people commuting on public transport presents us a extremely un-natural environment. Total strangers so close to each other that maybe the last person who has been so close to them would only be there wife or husband, girlfriend or boyfriend. The project shows us a selection of images captured by chance. The one question I would like to ask Marker is how did he find taking photos of people/strangers in such close proximity and would this not create a un-natural bias effect on the subject? Or were these images taken secretly without the subject knowing?
