I guys,

I'm working on a personnal project, shooting my local subway (Lille, France) with a 21mm. The goal is to print it on a zine, xerox style. Dark and dirty. Anyone here would be interested in making this project worldwide, shooting his own subway ? The idea would be to have maybe 10 people all over the world, each submitting 10 or 12 pics. No fine art here, just a fun and exciting DIY project ;)

Just tell me !

First pics :

Does it have to be from a subway? We don't have the subway here in Belgrade, but our buses are very interesting, at least to me. I've been doing this for more than two years, and would like to participate in this project.

Title says "I have made it in my life". The article is about Jelena Jankovic, Serbian tennis player.

Awesome images, reuno and underdog. Underdog - you've captured the misery of rush-hour public transport perfectly!

I'd contribute, but nowadays I take tram to work, not metro :(

I travel 3+ hours on the train to and from work everyday. I already have a few images and have been shooting a bit on the train lately.

I'd be keen :)

Hi guys !

Been very busy with work and life last days. Nice to come back here and see such and interest for this project. Very nice pics here. Been in Paris for work yesterday and couldn't think about anything but this project ;) Won't be able to answer to all of you today but i'll take the time it (you) deserve this week-end for sure. Will be a very exciting project !

Until I read your first posting here in the topic I did not even know that Lille has a subway system :eek::D

However, can't help or participate here, since the places I live don't have that kind of transportation.

reuno
06-24-2010, 04:13
Hey Florian. Yep, Lille have a subway system, i even think it's one of the first, maybe the first, worldwide, without driver ;)

thanks for your PM, renaud, I will gladly cover the city of Berlin, but give me a couple of days, I'll go and focus on it in about a week or so.
meanwhile, I have a couple of subway shots from the 'archives'.

I also have a bunch from Barcelona, but maybe everyone should focus on one city? as you like...!

I have a fair number of subway shots, mostly NYC and Chicago, some recent, some going back as far as the 1970s. If there's a project I would be happy to contribute. :)

Nice Mudman - one of the designated "busking" locations at the Harvard redline stop.

I'd like to participate with other shots from the Boston T.

If anyone has not seen this, and is a fan of subway photography, I recommend Bruce Davidson's "Subway" book. Any libe or bookstore will have it, and much of it was on line but I can't seem to find the link.

Very gritty!

As I’m not photographing for long now (one and a half year), I’m a little bit scared or embarrassed when shooting people... If I’m stronger than my ratfink, I’ll go in a few days. Then, if you want them, you may get the pictures of Hanover, Germany. Don’t be afraid of having to give a therapy to me, because I didn’t loose all my awe in photography, I still got about 70 years left, to learn photography :D, if everything will go on normal :rolleyes:
