Graffiti and skate culture has become more polished and is trending away from its roots. Philadelphian photographer, Christian Suchecki, brings back a grittier and darker edge to this aesthetic in his series, The Tunnels. Suchecki explores the dimly lit and overly graffiti scripted subway tunnels of North Philadelphia.

The shots are comprised of digital, 35mm, and large format 4×5 film. More impressive is that the artist managed to not only get the large format camera into the underground system, but also maintain excellent quality shots. I’m not usually a sucker for photo, but Suchecki’s style cannot go unappreciated.
