Subway moments...

 
 

Because I, like millions of other New Yorkers, spend quite a bit of time in the bowels of Manhattan, I start to look at the subway in a whole new light: What do these switches do, what do the lights mean, and where does this conduit go to? Some items that look important to the running of the subway look as if they haven't been touched by human hands in decades. It is with these questions in mind, and looking at these things in a new light, that I began working on my subway series of prints. Photographing certain objects pertaining to the infrastructure of the MTA and then recreating them in a pristine 3-d environment. I will be coming out with a series of five, two of which are done and can be seen below.
