Canadian photographer Christopher Forsyth shows the Montreal Metro in an entirely new way

With a self confessed “mild-obsession for metro systems”, Chris Forsyth has been photographing the architecture and design of his local underground stations for the past year. Having been a frequent traveller on the city’s Metro system, Forsyth decided to document the unique spaces in the Montreal Metro Project so that people could see them from a new perspective. Generally devoid of people, the images showcase the individual stations that were each designed by a different architect during the 60s and 70s.

68 stations feature in his body of work which is linked through his interest in line, pattern and colour. Though each image is as different as the station that it represents, the works are seemingly connected thanks to his strong use of composition and symmetry. While many commuters will undoubtedly see the Metro system as simply a means of transportation, Forsyth hopes to shed some light on it’s unique features. “ I hope to one day take the series from just The Montreal Metro Project to an all-encompassing international metro series,” he notes.
