Candid Portraits of Commuters Entering and Exiting Trains


Please Mind the Gap is a series by Singapore-based photographer Weilun Chong that captures commuters stepping over the gap as enter and exit trains. The collection of images sandwich each subject between the dark borders of locomotives and subway platforms, spotlighting their profiles and giving us a glimpse of their day through their facial expressions and body language.

The series offers a voyeuristic vibe while presenting candid portraits of strangers going about their daily lives in Singapore and Hong Kong subway stations. Stepping over the small space that separates the train from the platform is only one tiny obstacle to overcome in each of their lives as they travel from one place to the next. Chong captures the many people that use the mass transit systems on his daily commute, each an anonymous passenger given their moment in the spotlight.

Chong is working on publishing a book for this series, but, for now, it can be viewed in its entirety on his website.
