Métropolisson: at every station a play on words and images

Janol Apin

PARIS From Abbesses to Wagram, a black and white journey in which at every métro station you expect a new play on words and images. Photographer Janol Apin shows us an unusual and surreal vision of the Parisian subway through a series – titled “Métropolisson” – of 120 photographs that combine humor and fantasy. Janol invites us to an underground journey where names take on a new role, often ironic and funny: they do not indicate a place of the city but they tell stories… Here is our selection, Bon voyage!

Le Métro de Paris has inspired another photographer we adore: Julien B. Do you know his project “Premiers Métros”?

You can see with different eyes also The London Underground – or better, The Tube – with @missunderground. Do you know her photography series?

Do you know other artists (from any city in the world) devoted to this fascinating public transport? Leave a comment! 😉
