A Photographic Journey Through the London Underground (Kindle)
WHAT IS THERE TO SEE? That was the question the authors of this book, Elke and Niko Rollman, heard all the time when explaining their photographic project. The answer is LOOK AGAIN! This book will encourage its readers to see the London Underground in a different light. There is, indeed, a multitude of images on offer, ranging from architecture to technology, from old design classics to modern art. For anyone interested in the history of the London Underground, spanning over 150 years, this is the book for you. Once you discover the beauty of this particular underworld, it can turn your daily routine into an exciting and almost endless trail of new impressions. The authors also want to encourage readers to go out there and explore "The Tube" by themselves.
Photographer Elke Rollmann and historian Niko Rollmann have spent over 10 years exploring the iconic network of the London Underground with their cameras, aiming to catch as many different aspects of the system as possible. A lot of time also went into researching the Underground's complex history. This publication is not just about the network as such, but also about the people who work there and, of course, the commuters. A timeline and a further reading list complement the images and texts.
If you have never visited the London Underground this is the perfect book to know it and if you have already visited it it will help you to see it from another point of view. It is such a complete photographic tour of the "Tube" that it even includes a curious section of the singers of the Metro.Unos Cuantos Trenes
