From Michael Hintlian:
"All the photographs in the No Transfer gallery were made from the window of a bus or train. Starting out of a frustration with working on the street in Boston, a very difficult place for a street photographer, it grew into an absorbing project. Working from a moving bus or train offered new challenges, how quickly I needed to work, the right seat, dirty and tinted windows. Almost immediately something different began to happen - I was responding to the first impulse before my mind started to run the process. This environment offers no second chances or time to consider anything, only perception followed by a response with a camera. Photographer Henry Wessel said of this quality: "(being) outside your mind, your eyes far ahead of your thoughts."
