Kafka and BAM in the New York subway

Seen some  intense faces on the subway lately?

A little while ago we worked with the team over at SpotCo to shoot the promotional images for Season 2 of The Bridge Project, put on by Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). The show features performances of As You Like It and The Tempest, directed by the wonderful Sam Mendes (click here for a list of the actors). I heard such great things about last year’s Bridge Project, I am so glad they’ve continued it for another season.

Evan Kafka did an incredible job with the images and they look amazing. As a photographer, the dream is to be paid to shoot exactly the kind of photographer you want to be shooting and hired for your style (rather than being hired to shoot in another person’s style). Evan, SpotCo, and the team at BAM were perfectly in sync for this one. For that reason, this project was such a wonderful experience for everyone and I am blown away by the results.

Since the presentation in the subway system is really powerful, I thought we’d share some of the installation shots here! If you frequent Fort Greene in Brooklyn, take a second to check out Evan’s work on the subway station. It has also been spotted on the E train! If you happen to catch some of these faces staring you down on your morning commute, snap a photo and send them to me so I can post them on here! Send images to jacqueline@glasshouseassignment.com with the subject “Kafka on the subway.”

I’ve also included the color versions of the images below, just to add a little spice to your afternoon. See more of Evan’s work here!

And the color versions of a few (see more here)…

If you have any questions about Evan Kafka or any of our other Glasshouse Assignment photographers, feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email!
