Rob Gardiner has been putting together several interesting photographic series by walking the streets above different London Underground lines. Even better, he has been taking his photographs with a pinhole camera. Here, he talks about covering the Circle Line from Moorgate to Tower Hill.
On the tube it ordinarily it takes a little over an hour. I’ll be doing it on foot, taking slow pinhole photographs, between two stations at a time, so figure that it may take 26 days spread over several months. […] I start my journey at Barbican, aiming for Moorgate several hundred yards
away. As I’m taking my first photograph a couple stops to chat about
the strange contraption that I use to take these photos. […] Using a pinhole camera is a slow affair. This exposure is a good 15 minutes. Several hundred cars pass, leaving no trace on the film.
People pass and stare. Every 60 seconds or so I feel the rumble under
my feet of a train passing.
