During the financial crisis , Reinier Gerritsen took photographs of people in the subway between Wall Street and Grand Central Station in the New York banking district. His unposed group portraits of introverted commuters reflect the state of shock of a world unable to comprehend the collapse of the global financial system. In his choice of subject, Gerritsen consciously places himself within the tradition of documentary photographers from Walker Evans to Bruce Davidson and their fascination with everyday metropolitan life. However, Gerritsen assembles his photos from a number of shots taken in rapid succession, thus challenging the concept of documentary photography.
