Metro stations are one of my favourite “photographic playgrounds”. I like to play with wide angle lenses, perspectives and timing to reveal their hidden beauty, which often remains unnoticed by the thousands of commuters passing by every day. This series shows some of the fantastic beasts that can be seen in metro stations with a bit of imagination like mine. I started the series in Brussels but with time, I added other 'metro creatures' spotted in other cities. Timing is important: shooting outside rush hours when stations are nearly empty puts the emphasis on the stations as the main subject; the blue hour can add a special atmosphere in stations with windows above the ground; moving trains can complete the picture in some cases. All shots taken on tripod wiith a slow shutter speed.
