Underground in London

Friday 24 February 2012

Three photographers including David Solomons consider the concept of underground – all of the exhibited images were taken underground, be it in basements, cellars, or on the tube.

Underground reveals the photographers’ view on what lies beneath. David Solomons uses colour with a flash to illuminate the dark interiors of one of the oldest urban networks – the London underground. Gesche Würfel explores how superintendents decorate their work and living spaces in the basements of apartment buildings in New York. And Dylan Thomas depicts inanimate objects in unrecognisable and unfamiliar spaces.

In-Public was set up in 2000 to provide a home for Street Photographers.
