I spent a considerable amount of time using the U-Bahn and S-Bahn rail network to navigate Berlin. Most subway systems are fairly unexciting to use, however many stations of the U-Bahn are beautifully decorated with intensely coloured tiles and contrasting ironwork. With the constant rain and cloudy skies making above-ground a nightmare to use my camera, these unofficial, underground studios were a blessing:
BERLIN // U-BAHN // DE-SAT
A few of the many stations I had a chance to pass through whilst on my way around Berlin. Most central stations are decorated with a two-tone colour-scheme, but only a few made for interesting shots. For those interested, the retro-futuristic tetrachromatic station is the Schloßstraße U-Bahn, and is connected to the sci-fi-brutalist tower mentioned in my architecture collection. The deliberately animal-themed tiling is from the Zoologischer Garten U-Bahn. The monochromatic shots are from the Karl-Marx Allee line, heading out from Alexanderplatz, east.
