LONDON Jess MacDonald is @MissUnderground. Her photography project focuses on catching the London Underground (or Tube, as British people call it) at it’s most intimate and artistic; capturing beautifully composed shots of corridors, escalators, and tunnels when the vibrant transport system is quiet and (apparently) empty. It’s never so, actually, but Jess has developed admirable levels of skill and patience in capturing stunning shots of eye-catching architectural symmetry and patterns that usually are unnoticed.
We found out this project on Instagram – where Jess’ account has tens of thousands of followers – and knew more about the story thanks to Lester Jones’ video from his “Behind The Brand“ series. So enjoy the short documentary and the gallery with a selection of most recent @MissUnderground‘s photos – including several exceptions: the undergrounds visited during her travels in other cities. Can you recognize some stations?
P.S. You’ll never look at a transport system with the same eyes!
