Intimate and anonymous, Alejandro Cartagena's photobook Carpoolers is really stunning!
Carpoolers is a found poetry of terrific power. Twice a week Alejandro set up his camera above Highway 85 during rush hour. He took bird's-eye-view photographs of day laborers in the backs of pickup trucks on their way to work. Intimate yet impersonal, voyeuristic yet respectful. The photos offer glimpses at men who are usually overlooked or hidden from view.
