Wolfgang Strassl

Underground Portraits

The new series of photographs by Wolfgang Strassl (*1956) encapsulates the vivid plurality of people, one encounters in any carriage on the London Underground. Yet, consciously defying the rules of traditional portraiture, he omits the faces. Thereby, he allows us an undistracted and genuine perusal of these passengers and challenges our perception: What do we see? What do recognize? Do we understand the stories the visual appearances are telling? Both gentle and pervasive Strassl examines the human condition in subterranean London and the rich diversity of this contemporary metropolis.

Here you’ll find all our PHOTO books.

»The images invite viewers to scrutinise the “conscious and unconscious messages” conveyed by clothes and body language, while showing the diversity of people coexisting on the tube.«
