This project was the result of a series beginning with 35mm pictures of the underground station “Schottentor” of the line U2 in Vienna, also called “Jonasreindl”. The aim was to allow viewers to stop and get a closer look on a place that usually is experienced on the run, underground as well as overground.

Subsequently, I expanded the scope of the project to include other stations of the U2, now taken in large format. In order to direct the viewer’s focus on the station itself, no people or human activity can be detected in the pictures.
