A new book showcases the beauty and symmetry of the London Underground, as seen through the eyes and lens of one London photographer.
The Tube Mapper Project: Capturing Moments On The London Underground stays away from the usual fact-based territory of books about the tube, and instead focuses on the symmetry and reflections of the stations, with poems included.
The photos are by Luke Agbaimoni, whose work we have featured before. Most recently, we were captivated by his attempt to photograph every station on the Circle line.
The book is an extension of Agbaimoni's Tube Mapper Project. He said:
The Tube Mapper project follows my journey slowly capturing moments at every London Underground, Overground and DLR station. The project began over four years ago, just before my first child was born, I realised that the free time I used for creative photography of cityscapes at dusk was likely to disappear. So I devised a new project that would fit more comfortably around my work schedule. The Tube Mapper Project was born and I started capturing moments on my commute on the London Underground.
Here, he highlights some of his favourite photos from the book.
The Tube Mapper Project: Capturing Moments on the London Underground is released on 1 October 2020, and is available for pre-order now.
