“Berlin combines the culture of New York, the traffic system of Tokyo, the nature of Seattle, and the historical treasures of, well, Berlin”, describes Professor Hiroshi Motomura. However, this eclectic urban environment is not only found at its surface, but below it, in its vibrant and bustling underground public transit system. Every day, the U-Bahn travels a distance equivalent to circling the earth 8.7 times, where a striking personality of colours, graphics and typography comes to life.

Pixartprinting’s latest project, ‘Berlin Lines’ explores the vast subterranean network through photography, documenting its riders and their personal connection to it. Through the stories of dozens of U-Bahn passengers, Pixartprinting and photographer Sebastian Spastic offer a private yet personable peek at Berlin’s bustling subway system.
