In February 2020, I was very pleased to be asked to contribute some images to MUSÉE magazine for their feature on mass transit in cities.
The feature explained how public transport is the vein of any city. I had some of my images of the London underground system featured.
The Underground shuttles 5 million passengers each day throughout the sprawl of London, with 11 lines connecting 270 stations. Photographer Terry Hall creates images of the train lines that are not just aesthetically pleasing, but conjure the feeling of the train’s riders. Using motion blur to express the passing of a train or, in some cases, the frantic movement of travelers throughout the stations, Hall’s images encapsulate the hurried pace of commuting, and the high-speed tempo of London’s heartbeat.
