For commuters, transport becomes a place in which you are obligated to be in a vehicle for a certain amount of time, every day. While we often think of transportation as a way to travel towards a destination, in some ways it's also travel away from something—an escape. You are physically escaping, but also often mentally escaping too. 

The term "escapism" refers to sort of the daydreaming or fantasizing that we do to escape the drudgery or banality of everyday life. 

This series of images are a result of photo manipulations exploring the idea of “ESCAPE” in transportation, taken from images on public transportation vehicles in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco.
