Le Metro Images
This is a Folio in Progress: le Paris Metro was photographed at Metro Station Chatelet in 1968 on 3 B&W Tri-X negatives. From scans of these I have lately attempted to visually rebuild my feelings for the Metro. I recall the Metro's confident motion, young and old passengers swaying in antique rail-cars. Inside Chatelet, lovely incandescent lighting glowed with a beaux-arts motif. The station rested inside a vaulted tunnel with dual tracks aiming deeply under the Seine. Its platforms lead up to a huge caisson from which we exited by climbing on opposing spiral staircases up to a French elevator which then ascended inside the mammoth pipe, to the street, far above. The following contrived images were composed in 2014. -Fred Rowley
