Amtrak Spotlight by Brian Green

I received a email from Amtrak about wanting to do a interview about my work they had been following on Instagram. I spent the month during winter break traveling around the country. I took fifteen trains in thirty days to do a small loop of the US for a newspaper zine I am working on titled Passing Through"

Around The Country On Amtrak by Brian Green

I made it back to New York last night from my trip, making a loop of the country. I decided to travel for winter break and shoot a monograph I want to put out, titled "Passing Through." The project will also be printed as a limited edition newspaper zine.

For the project I traveled around the country for 30 days, using 15 trains to explore, while documenting the people and places along the way. I stayed connected by social media throughout the trip, finding strangers' couches when I made it to each destination.

I also ended up staying with people I met on the train. I let the strangers I was staying with or meeting decide what happened during my stay with them.
