If You’re Not A Fan Of Montreal's STM Metro System, You Will Be After You See This

Photo cred - Brendan Leigh

Ride the entire Montreal metro network and experience the unique aesthetic beauty inherent to every individual station without having to leave your seat. With but a click of your mouse, you can be instantly transported anywhere within the network, on any line, with striking photographs representing each station, all to be found at Les Stations de Métro de Montréal.

Brendan Leigh, a Montreal based photographer, wished to showcase the architectural attractivness of the entire metro network, and so created Les Stations de Métro de Montréal, his first photo essay. Fully interactive, the photo essay/website offers a new way to see the metro and truly appreciate the unique nature of each station.

Random Montrealers are largely absent from many of Leigh's photographs, which was on purpose. Leigh made the artistic decision not to include too many people, as he wished to make people focus on the metro stations themselves, rather than a random passerby.

Take Leigh's photographic tour of the Montreal metro network by heading over to Les Stations de Métro de Montréal, and be sure to check out Leigh's Instagram if you want to see more of his work.
