Montreal, Canada based photographer Chris Forsyth has been documenting the unique art and architecture of his home town’s sprawling subway system, commonly known as the ‘metro’.
Says Forsyth, “Montreal’s metro system is comprised of 68 stations transporting over one million passengers daily. Often overlooked however is the unique art and architecture of each stop.”
“When the project was launched in the mid 60’s, under the direction of Montreal mayor Jean Drapeau, a competition was held among Canadian architects to decide the design of each station. As a result, every station was designed by an individual architect and art installations were commissioned on a station to station basis.”
The Montreal Metro Project is an ongoing photo project by Forsyth capturing the ideals of the system, ‘Society In Motion’ and a unique architectural experience.
