This Lift Looks Like It’s From The Distant Future
Photographer Nick Frank takes a stark, minimalist approach to composition that often reveals bold features of shape, structure and space. For instance, when taking these shots of the unique Munich subway system, or U-Bahn, he arrived at around 5:30 on a Sunday in order to see the place as empty as possible, free from the distractions of scuttling passengers and the like.
Train Platform, Or The Bridge Of A Starship?
The result of this photography “strategy” is undeniably fascinating, and in a bizarre way, beautiful. The U-Bahn system, which went into operation in 1971 prior to the ’72 Munich Olympics, features fascinating futuristic design, intended to “help make a passenger’s wait more pleasant.”
