Waiting to Take Flight (9 Photos)

The images contained in photographer John Schabel’s recently released book, Passengers, published by Twin Palms, documents the in-between time of airplane travel and the state of mind of the traveler–a mixture of excitement, trust, wonder and reflection.

Schabel describes the series as a meditation on the strangers framed in little windows, waiting to take flight. “Suspended between departure and arrival, we sit 30,000 feet high, sealed in a metal tube, gliding over geography with a low hum,” he says.

The International Center of Photography in New York City will host a book signing event for Passengers on Friday, February 8, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
