For his series, Last Night at the Bus Stop, New York City-based photographer Travis Huggett loves to capture late night scenes of people on their commute home. The night-time photographs pick out the often tired faces of the commuters, making best use of the surrounding artificial light to uncover the facial expressions that would otherwise be private.
Speaking of the inspiration behind his ongoing project, he said: “The first thing I saw was the contrast, looking into the over-lit buses as they wound their way through the streets at night. Next it was the faces, weary riders, tired, enduring the last bit of their public day, already slipping into their private lives.”
Huggett earned a BFA in photography from The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Working primarily in portraiture, advertising and fashion, his photos have been exhibited in New York City, Boston and Connecticut. His work has been seen in Vanity Fair, as album covers for Vanguard Records, and on his mother’s mantelpiece.
