Seeing the Metro Differently

paris metro seatI’ve always had a fascination with the colored seats of the metro and photographed them before but there was always something missing from the photos, either the lighting was poor or the reflection of the fluorescent light marred the color.

While waiting for the metro last month, I looked at the metro seats in a different way and photographed them more abstractly just focusing on the top of the seat against the background poster. After, I started to notice the posters in some of the metro stations had either mustard or avocado colored ceramic frames around them and I started to photograph the just the edges and got some very interesting results.
