When you're riding the subway, how often do you stop and notice who's actually making it run? In 2008, Dutch photographer Janus van den Eijnden set out to document the MTA's hardworking subway conductors. He spent hours underground to catch his subjects in the moments when they were deciding to close the train doors, and all of his shots are candid, lending an intensely personal feel to the images.
