I’m very fond of Ryan Maxwell‘s “street” portraits on the Metro. Black and white, almost always taken without the person’s knowledge, and almost always an interesting subject to look at.

This one is particularly good. It gives a glimpse into another subject, unsmiling, riding the Red line (an everyman, really). But it also gives a glimpse into the artist at work. Go look at it larger and you’ll see Mr. Maxwell clicking away.

Born in Lebanon, Samer moved to DC to go to college. A lot of good that did him. Twenty-two years later, he still lives in the area. When he’s not writing for a blog or tweeting incessantly, he wanders the streets (and the globe) photographing whatever gets in his way.
