"Disorienting" Photos Spruce Up Subway Stop

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 - 11:56 AM


Straphangers passing through the Bowling Green subway station may be made dizzy by an array of back-lit photos that look straight down on Manhattan intersections.

The photos, part of the MTA's Arts for Transit program, are the work of Navid Baraty, who strapped a camera to his wrist to capture some of the images. A press release about the exhibit says Baraty aimed the camera as he "leaned out windows, and on ledges, gaining a view that that gives a new perspective on our role as city dwellers."

The exhibit will remain on view through 2014.
