I remember years of getting on the tube (I’m lucky to work more locally now), but I never experienced them silent and eerie as these photographs show. They remind me of a low budget horror film I once saw called Creep, which gave me the heebie-jeebies!
These empty stations were captured in rare and unique images by New York based photographer Aaron Pegg during a trip to London for his 30th birthday at the start of the month.
Pegg began taking photographs of empty stations in his home city in November 2013 after pictures on Instagram inspired him to pick up a camera himself.
To start, Pegg told the Evening Standard that he was mainly interested in taking pictures of New York City from a landscape and architecture point of view when he entered into the world of photography.
But his camera lens soon turned to photographing empty stations and Pegg has since extended his collection of images with empty London Underground stations. His stunning images have since gained a cult following of more than 147,000 people.
Pegg shot around 500 images across 30 to 40
stations. His pictures show the beauty of the London Underground’s gleaming
tunnels and escalators, revealing their symmetry and lines that go unnoticed in
the bustle of daily life.
