When visiting Paris I fell in love with the subway system. To me it was both a contemporary art gallery and theatre space. The large format posters were like contemporary artworks, with their bold designs and bright colours - everything from pop art to constructivism could be found.
I also enjoyed the juxtaposition of the people in the subway. Some of the scene were straight out of a Edward Hopper painting, others reminded my of Sartre or Camus play or novel. There is a definite sense of inspiration and a sense of place in the Paris subway system.
This photo essay illustrates the cast of characters that is the Paris Subway Theatre.
