Klaus Maria Einwanger captured critical moments of urban life just before the Covid-19 pandemic hit. His tribute to the taxi drivers is both personal and universal — and, as he points out, "written in their faces." In each city, Einwanger explores a very different microcosm. The daily worries of New Yorkers, the intrepidity of Londoners, and the distinguished pride of Tokyo drivers form the backdrop for his exploration with the camera.

What will the future hold? Transportation analysts expect that the traditional taxi industry will not be able to survive alongside ride-sharing apps and the promises of platform capitalism. This leads the photographer to explore what happens if one must die for the other to survive.
