A Metro Ride Like You’ve Never Seen Before

Taking your morning metro ride to a whole new level, the city of Stockholm’s underground passages are home to a series of majestic artwork.

With nearly every metro station in the city participating, the showcase of art has been dubbed “the world’s longest art exhibition”, which seems fitting as the artwork goes on for nearly 110 kilometers!

Luckily for us, on a visit to Stockholm, Alexander Dragunov shot a series of photographs of the Solna Centrum station, where the artists Anders Aberg and Karl-Olov Bjor created massive cave-like installations back in the 70′s.

The primitive cave-like artwork is fused together with the ultra modern setting of the underground, and I imagine it keeps metro goer eyes more than occupied as they wait for their daily commute.
