I'm up down in the subway!

Installed today, my photographs are the new Arts for Transit show in the Atlantic Ave/Pacific St. MTA station in Brooklyn. It's in the tunnel that runs between the underground plaza where staircases/escalators ascend to the D,M,N,R,2,3,4,5 tracks & the Q & LIIR tracks (go to the lowest level & follow signs to the Q & LIRR. There are 8 lightboxes, each 44" x 65". The pictures were all shot in the neighborhoods that spread out around the station.
This photo makes no attempt to show the images accurately, just the ambience & the scale. I'll make better pictures soon. We're planning a big get-together to celebrate this show & you'll get word about that, but in the meantime it's there 24/7. For a lot of you, it could even be a fun break from your boring commute. Hope you'll check it out.
