Montreal's gorgeous metro stations are the center of a photo series by lensmith Christopher Forsyth

Canadian photographer Christopher Forsyth has set out to capture something many city dwellers don't give much thought at all: the infrastructural, architectural, and artistic beauty of a finely tuned metro system.

Documenting all 68 stations of the Metro de Montreal, which was established in the 1960s and today is the busiest in Canada (serving nearly 1.3 million passengers) and the third-busiest in North America, behind New York and Mexico City, Forsyth's gorgeous photographs send up the system's Brutalist muscularity and surprising design details.

More photos, and a full interview, over at Dezeen.
