The Stunning Symmetry of Underground Metros Around the World

From Prague to Paris to Tokyo to London, Enig Hui has traveled all over the world and captured stunning photos of the underground metro system. While the Malaysia native also documents urban scenes and beautiful landscapes, his images of subways and trains across the globe are particularly striking, evoking a strong sense of drama in their extreme symmetry and contrast.

Whether the train platforms are eerily empty or bustling with commuters, Hui’s incredible photos capture the essence of living in the modern concrete jungle, with a classic film aesthetic that complements the gritty energy of urban life. With a keen eye for patterns, balance, and careful framing, the photographer manages to transform the metro–a staple of sprawling metropolises–into stark works of art that embody the city’s vitality.
