Katrin Koenning - From the series “Transit”, 2012

Transit documents people on journeys. While travelling, you hear laughter and bits of stories in amongst the monotonous sighing of the train or the mourning sound of an aching ship. Mostly, you hear silence. By fate, destiny or chance, strangers are thrown together for a short while, forced to share an intimate space. There is a quiet comfort in sitting back and watching the world fly by.

I love this so much.

There is something so calming to me about travel, even in its more stressful moments. I feel so comfortable amongst strangers, and it is so wonderful to me when I am able to make strangers into friends in only a short amount of time. Sometimes I feel like I’ve stepped into a completely different world when I travel alone, which I have done on several occasions. It’s comforting to me to watch the world fly by you through the window of a plane or a train or a car, rocked gently by the swaying of the vehicle. This is a series I can relate to in so many ways, and something I have thought about a lot before—and especially recently.

I love traveling with all my heart.
