VN #008: Montreal Metro published September 24, 2023
Photographic Expressions While Travelling the Montreal Metro
I’m excited to be returning to Montreal in two days to teach a 6-day photographic workshop followed by a 3-week photographic arts residency. During this time I will be following the advise of Irish painter Tony O’Malley when he said “Never be swayed by anything but your own work and vision”. This means I will not be documenting Montreal as a place, but rather, I will be photographing Montreal as an experience. This requires one’s camera and lenses, one’s imagination, and one’s heart.
Photographing myself photographing in a Metro station
Each Metro station is a unique architectural delight.
Metro station; looking downward
Metro station; looking upward
Metro station; architectural abstract
Metro station; on the move
Every metro station offers an opportunity to showcase Montrealer’s on the go. It’s the most efficient subway system I have ever experienced and when I travel in Montreal I go everywhere by Metro.
