Patrick Witty (@patrickwitty) spends his days editing and curating photos as TIME magazine’s international picture editor. But in late March, Witty inadvertently embarked on his own photo series when he began documenting fellow commuters that had seemingly fallen asleep on the subway. After posting a couple photos of snoozing passengers and captioning them “out cold,” “it sort of snowballed from there.” Despite the appearance that the people in his photos are sleeping, most are actually engrossed in their mobile devices. “They are looking down, lost in their phones or tablets. And I’m doing exactly the same… they are self-portraits in some ways.” Join Patrick’s daily commute by following him on Instagram at @patrickwitty.
