Since 1978, Dieter Leistner has been photographing people waiting at public transport stops throughout the world. Whether in Asia or Europe, South America or the Indian Ocean, in the countryside or in town, under capitalism or socialism - Leitner captures those waiting subtly and with a professional perspective. He opens up a cosmos of instantaneous shots with their own particular personality: sometimes cheerful, sometimes melancholic, sometimes busy, sometimes lonesome. The observer is always part of the composition, recognising themselves in some of those waiting. Text in English and German.
