There is a symbolic significance to a train station or an airport. These are the points of arrival and departure, the places where countless people are excitedly beginning their personal journeys and where countless others are just ending theirs. The people that riddle the terminals, platforms, and pick-up areas of these places all have this in common despite their deep variety. Everybody is in between destinations, everybody is linked by this sense of intersecting journeys. Going and coming, coming and going, luggage and tickets in hand, staring up at the clock and scanning the premises for the familiar faces of a welcome party, these are moments that we can all universally relate to. This energy permeates the airports and train stations of cities around the globe, and is the subject of today’s photo gallery.
