Malaysian photographer Enig Hui has a keen eye for urban beauty. While her photos of landscapes and public centers are breathtaking, they don’t hold a candle to her documentation of big city public transit facilities. Adopting a classic film aesthetic, the artist captures the industrial spectacle of subway stops and train stations in major cities all over the globe. Careful to let these modern marvels speak for themselves, she endeavors to highlight their symmetry and rough glamour without spoiling their integrity. A respect for balance and a broad angle lens allow her to successfully portray the importance of these spaces. Without them, it would be very difficult to have a well-functioning metropolis.
