Here For The Ride


Here For The Ride is Andre D. Wagner’s first monograph and comprehensive body of work in print. Exploring the poetic side of everyday life, the book chronicles people of different ethnicities, cultures and social groups, as they embark on a personal journey through the New York City subway.

Made up of sixty-two photographs that are intended to be read more than viewed, Here For The Ride is a collective sequence alluding to the qualities of life that are often invisible to the common eye. What started as an approach to kill the mundaneness of commuting between Brooklyn and Manhattan soon turned into a three-year journey through the New York City subway. Rather than attempting to depict all subway lines and boroughs, Wagner focused on photographing his personal journey in transit.
Containing two interrelated documents, the hardcover book contains the primary photographic narrative, consisting of 100 pages and 62 photos. The paperback includes an essay that examines the photographic work in the book, an in-depth interview with the artist and a series of images that delve deeper into the artistic process behind book.
The first edition of Here For The Ride is limited to 750 copies. Each copy comes with a numbered certificate, verifying the originality of the work.
