• Ion  Grigorescu, Commuters, 1972

The Commuters is a series of portraits of people on public transport. Banned from working in Bucharest, the artist commuted for many years — in the opposite direction to everyone else — to a small town where he taught drawing at a primary school. These portraits can be interpreted as an unusual testimony to the solidarity of working people.
