Anything can be beautiful if seen through the right lens, even the long winding tunnels of the subway. Photographer Chris Forsyth discovered the buried beauty of public transport while he was working on a school assignment in Montreal. This project put him and his camera on a path to Berlin, Munich, Stockholm, Prague, and Hamburg to unearth more surprisingly breathtaking public transportation systems.
Most of his images don’t include human subjects, so it’s easy to look at them and be mesmerized by the colors and perspective. Take a look at some of Chris’ award-winning photos and let us know what you think. Chris also encourages all of us to capture our own images of our daily travels and share them with the Instagram hashtag #themetroproject.
