Monday Moodboard: Photographs of the London Underground by Bob Mazzer

Who would've thought that something as simple as commuting aboard a train would make such an impression, when captured on film?

It’s no big secret. My curiosity over British culture is beyond attending the Glastonbury Music Fest, hoarding Doc Martens or the London Bridge. I would love to visit London and its neighboring cities should I be given the opportunity to fly to Europe anytime soon.

And so it is with adoration and longing that I look at Bob Mazzer’s photographs. Bob Mazzer is a British photographer widely known for photographing the London Underground, commonly known as The Tube, and its commuters, for 40 years. He used a Rolleiflex in the 1960’s and a Leica M4 in the 80’s. He has taken pictures of a variety subjects as well as other locations in the United Kingdom, as seen on his Flickr and Facebook accounts.

Here are a handful of Bob Mazzer’s iconic photos…

…in black and white

…and in color.

For those who commute via the tube on a regular basis, Mazzer’s images might merely be a collective reflection of daily experiences. But that’s just it. Who would’ve thought that something as simple as commuting aboard a train would make such an impression, when captured on film?
