„Underground Landscapes“ U-Bahn-Tunnel, Adern im Untergrund der Stadt

Fast 10 Jahre lang hat der deutsche Fotograf Timo Stammberger U-Bahn-Tunnel  fotografiert. Von 2006 bis 2014 entstand die Fotoserie Underground Landscapes im urbanen Untergrund von insgesamt ein Dutzend Städten.

Underground Landscapes gibt einen wunderbaren Einblick in die sonst unzugänglichen Transitadern im Untergrund der Städte. Timo Stammberger teilt seine Faszination für U-Bahn-Tunnel unter den Straßen von Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, New York, Philadelphia, Lissabon, Barcelona, Stockholm, Dortmund, Prag, Budapest und Wien.

„When I was a kid, I remember my grandfather often taking me on trips to a train station nearby which happened to neighbor a freight train yard. I immediately got fascinated by the atmosphere of the track landscape, the thunderous sound of trains passing by, followed by a complete calm. I’ve been a track romantic ever since. In 2003, through my former interest in graffiti writing, I started exploring the underground track landscapes of the cities I lived in: Barcelona, Berlin, Frankfurt and New York.

Subway tunnels are part of a large, well-branched mass transit system that is used by many people on a daily basis, in Berlin for example, carrying an average of 1,4 million passengers per day. Public transportation plays an immense role in the daily life of todays metropolises and has interweaved itself deep into the cityscapes. Rarely, however do passengers get to see the real beauty of subway tunnels as they travel on their journey through the underground of cities. This quiet world lies below the surface of our daily life. Touched by many, but explored by very few.
