"While traveling along a subway line, our imaginations may take us to strange places. What, we might wonder, would a "Foggy Bottom" or "Cockfosters" actually look like?Photographer Janol Apin has given us some idea.  

 

Apin set up amusing, carefully arranged scenes in nearly half of Paris Metro's 245 stations. Each is meant to be a literal depiction of the station name.

 

In Argentine, for example, there are tango dancers. https://www.facebook.com/Janol.Apin.Photographe ;

 

At Château d'Eau (which translates to "Water Tower"), a man desperately reaches for a water cooler.

"Apin tells Fast Company that the idea for the project came during a stop at Richard-Lenoir, when he saw a stranger posing underneath the station sign, causing Apin to think that the man could be Richard himself. Not surprisingly, he eventually came come back to the station with his camera, and a man in a t-shirt that says "Richard.""

 

Métropolisson "La photographie est un grand labyrinthe où les regards se croisent. Janol Apin nous invite à un voyage souterrain parfois candide, souvent drôle mais toujours anecdotique où l’image et le texte se rencontrent.
