Mesmerising metro photography

2014 saw Montreal-based photographer, Chris Forsyth start his Montreal Metro Project, which set out to explore his daily urban environment. During his daily commute to college he captured photos of the 1960’s stations and shared them on Instagram alongside #mtmetroproject. Before long visitors and fellow Montreal residents began building a photographic archive of the city’s 68 metro stations.

After winning International Photographer of the Year in 2015 Forsyth turned his interest to Europe for a 14 day whistle stop tour of Europe’s metro offerings. He ventured to Munich, Berlin, Stockholm, Hamburg and Prague and started sharing his photos via #themetroproject on Instagram.

Moscow, London, Washington DC and Naples are next on Forsyth’s list. Follow @chrismforsyth on Instagram for more, or visit his website.
