About the Project
Welcome to Marooned on the Subway, a visual and literary anthology of Chicagoans. My goal is to support and encourage a society of engaged, compassionate listeners and observers. I invite you to read about the wonderful people I meet and hope that their stories inspire you to consider how, together, we compose the fabric of our society.
We'd love to hear from you. If you have something to say about a post, leave a comment!
If you'd like to get in touch with either of us:
I am doing my best to answer all emails, messages, and wall postings. All of them are important to me, and I believe they all deserve a reply. If I do not respond, please know that I have read your message/email and it is very much appreciated. :)

Thanks to everyone who featured Marooned!
Who are you?
My name is Mariam. I'm a photographer and writer. I am the publisher of this blog. Nice to meet you.
What camera do you use?
I shoot with a Nikon D7000.
I usually use a 50mm Nikkor lens.
Can you photograph me or tell a story I know?
If you want, you can send us a photo of someone you met and share their story in 250 words or less.
You need to photograph [my neighborhood] more!
You're right! I try to make it to many different places. :)
What do you say to the people you photograph?
"Can I ask you a question?" or "Can I talk to you for a sec?"
