State of Rest and Motion is a tour de force, a poetic homage to the subway as the rare place where people have time to themselves even as they share their space with thousands of others. Velez's main intention is to produce a series of portraits of humans in their daily habitat. The faces are so honest and open, oblivious to fact that they are being recorded, yet there they are, close-up in stunning detail.
