The Villa-Maria Metro station is located in the Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce neighbourhood of Montreal. The station opened in 1981 and the graphically-striking, minimalist design and celebratory colour scheme borrow from the mid-century modern, which never feels out of style. The Metro is imbued with a triumphant sense of nostalgia, like so many other practical and pedestrian spaces.
Toronto artist Chris Shepherd, uses photography to document the urban. His approach is directed by composition, colour, and form—and largely influenced by contemporary architecture, painting, and sculpture. For the past decade, Shepherd has focused on capturing pedestrian life in isolated moments of tranquility. Empty subway platforms, vacant storefronts, forgotten industrial spaces, or simply the abandoned nooks and crannies of ordinary spaces, all become subjects of interest.
Shepherd’s work has been exhibited across North America and is included in major corporate collections in Canada and the United States.
