From Prague to Paris to Tokyo to London, Enig Hui has traveled all over the world and captured stunning photos of the underground metro system. The Malaysia native’s images of subways and trains across the globe are incredibly striking, evoking a strong sense of drama in their extreme symmetry and contrast.

The Parisian metro system is truly a marvel of public transportation. As the sixth-largest metro system in the world, it carries nearly 1.5 billion passengers each year over its 132 miles of tracks—but for all its impressive capabilities, there are 11 stations that sit unused, either closedduring World War II or never opened to begin with. If one candidate wins the city’s mayoral election this year, however, those famous “ghost stations” might see new life, in very unexpected ways.
