Adam Magyar – Stainless, 42 Street (excerpt) from Adam Magyar on Vimeo.

Commuting isn’t pretty, and yet Hungarian-born, Berlin-based artist Adam Magyar has managed to find the beauty in life’s most mundane daily endeavor. In a series of short videos called Stainless, he captures city dwellers in New York, Berlin, and Tokyo in a state of suspension. To make his films, Magyar rode the subways and filmed people outside the trains with a slow motion camera. That is drastically simplifying the artistic and technological detail that went into the project. Magyar created a whole complement of specially modified gear and software to capture the hypnotic, high resolution images.
