Bright, vivid photographs enliven subway passageways and the underground environment, and showcase the work of primarily New York - based photographers. Large scale lightboxes (approx. 45 X 66 inches) are illuminated from within and the images are printed on transparency film by local providers who donate their services.
Lightbox exhibitions are located at four key sites: Grand Central Terminal Dining Pavilion, 42nd Street Bryant Park (B, C, F, V), Bowling Green (4, 5) and Atlantic Avenue (2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, M, N, Q, LIRR).
Exhibitions rotate approximately every 12-16 months and a range of photographic work is represented through this ever-changing venue. Calls for entries and curated exhibitions are the methods used to identify the featured photographer, and past exhibitions have included thematic work as well as portraits and landscape.
