'The Metro Project' is a photography series captured and curated by creator Chris Forsyth that focuses on capturing the vibrant and technicolor architecture that exists underground in major global cities. The photos explore different underground stations, tunnels and waiting areas by focusing on the beauty in the color, shape and patterns used to liven up the spaces.

While transit stations are often a place of quick paced motion, Forsyth's series encourages viewers to slow down and appreciate the design of the space. Each photo focuses on the architecture rather than the people that utilize the transportation, highlighting the beauty in these public spaces built below the surface. The images hone in on the bright lightning, colored walls and patterned panels that create each station uniquely different.
