"Here For The Ride is Andre D. Wagner’s first monograph and comprehensive body of work in print. Exploring the poetic side of everyday life, the book chronicles people of different ethnicities, cultures and social groups, as they embark on a personal journey through the New York City subway system.
Made up of sixty-two photographs that are intended to be read more than viewed, Here For The Ride is a collective sequence alluding to the qualities of life that are often invisible to the common eye. What started as an approach to kill the mundaneness of commuting between Brooklyn and Manhattan soon turned into a three-year journey through the New York City subway. Rather than attempting to depict all subway lines and boroughs, Wagner focused on photographing his personal journey in transit."
