Editor's choice #2 'TRAINS'

Like the varying cultures the trains draw lines between, our photographers found each train had its own personality, from the bullet-ridden window of a rail car in Albania, to the sleek brightly lit "women's only'" tube in Iran. We found a common humanity and need for connection between far-flung destinations like Moscow and North Korea where drastic differences in development, dramatically insular political regimes and electrified fences split the two, but the Trans-Siberian railway connects them. These are our favorite locomotive links between worlds.
