The Underground is the backbone of the city of London, a part of our identity. It’s a network of shared experiences and visual memories. The Tube Mapper London photography project follows my journey capturing images near and around all London Underground, Overground and DLR Stations.
Sometimes our journeys to work become so routine we begin to see symmetry in it!
Thank you for sharing this project with us Luke, how did the project begin?
The project began when my first child was born, I was worried that I would be no longer able to partake in creative photography. At the time I enjoyed nightscapes and sunsets. I realised that these photos may be trickier to take with a child, so in response I eventually came up with the idea of the tube mapper project as it could fit within my commute to work and home.
I love it when doors align at the end of a tunnel. The red tiles make this the ideal location to capture this moment. I froze a moving train with a fast shutter, it took ages to get it centred. The result looks likea Mondian painting.
I love the juxtaposition of this image taken at Leicester Square Station. Part of the 'Lines of light' collection.
Thank you for sharing your work with us Luke, could you tell us a little about yourself as a photographer?
I’m Luke Agbaimoni, a photographer and designer based in London. I have an arts background with a degree in graphic design and my photography however was self-taught after I graduated.
I have a special love for dusk and night photography, enjoying the technical challenge of capturing low light images.
