From Michael Hintlian:
“All the photographs in the “No Transfer” gallery were made from the window of a bus or train. Starting out of a frustration with working on the street in Boston – a very difficult place for a street photographer – it grew into an absorbing project. Working from a moving bus or train offered new challenges, how quickly I needed to work, the right seat, dirty and tinted windows. Almost immediately something different began to happen – I was responding to the first impulse before my mind started to run the process. This environment offers no second chances or time to consider anything, only perception followed by a response with a camera. Photographer Henry Wessel said of this quality: “…(being) outside your mind, your eyes far ahead of your thoughts.”
