Breathtaking Photography of Train Riders/Train Culture in India

This series of photographs comes to us from Philadelphia-born photographer Steve McMurry. Steve had this to say about these series: “Ever since the British built the railroads in India that stitch that vast subcontinent together, trains have been the organizing force that unify all of its disparate parts. As I tried to tell the story of the community that inhabits the depots, I would go to the train station every day and wander around the platform. Each time a train would roll in, while carefully stepping over bodies and around huge mountains of luggage, I would start to photograph the swirl of life that assaults and saturates the senses.”

They’re beautiful. See for yourself below.
