Craig Ward’s Subvisual Subway features subway bacteria #celebratephotography
This series is awesome. Always wash your hands, people! From Creative Boom:
It’s difficult to imagine the sheer amount of bacteria that we’re exposed to each and every day. And when it comes to thinking about it, the majority of us are probably of the impression that it’s not worth it.
One photographer however has made bacteria his business, documenting the germs that await the commuters of the New York City subway. In Subvisual Subway, Craig Ward explores the invisible world that exists on the handrails and seats of busy trains. And strangely, the results are rather beautiful.
Ward explains: “Over the summer of 2015, I rode the trains of each of New York City’s twenty-two subway lines, collecting bacterial samples from hand rails, seats and other high traffic surfaces in an attempt to create an unconventional series of portraits of the city’s complex eco-system and a snapshot of the city at large.
