Influenced by architecture photographer Julius Shulman, Forsyth’s first metro series, “Montreal Metro”, started out as a school project and ended up earning him a 2015 International Photographer of the Year award. Today, the young artist’s attraction to subway architecture only grows as he travels the world capturing gorgeous shots of empty platforms, colorful halls, and various ubiquitous underground areas.

Although most would struggle to add life to empty areas, Forsyth’s work, which can be seen on his Instagram page, is full of symmetry and vibrancy. The photographer does some post-editing on his photos, such as editing out security cameras or graffiti, but tries to capture the normally-crowded areas in their natural empty state when possible.
