Gritty, grimy, seedy, these are all words one could use to describe Montreal's underground metro system, at least certain areas and stations. Despite the city and the STM's best efforts, you can't make every metro car a work of art.

Contrasting the inherent grunge of the metro system with modern beauty, super talented Montreal photographer Jean Philip Zi created his photo set "Montreal Underground."

Zi's model, clad in lingerie and a business-esque overcoat, looks sexy, dangerous, classy, and "of the night" (if you catch my drift) all at once, thanks to the urban backdrop of the metro car, which in itself can be a setting for so many different citizens.

Take a look at "Montreal Underground" below.
