The linear structure of train tracks is interesting in shape and form. Tracks can become mesmerizing and begin to blur while you watch, and my goal is to capture this sensation. Even though they are static we experience them as moving as we travel. Using long exposure photography in the tunnels reproduces those sensations by capturing the lighting and blurring the lines.
I was originally fascinated by shapes and tones but I’ve discovered that the beautiful colours exposed in the tunnels are an important part of their character, emphasizing both their linearity and curves. However, once above ground black and white images highlight the structure of the lines by removing any distracting elements in the open environment.
