PATH Photodocumentary

For a while now the PATH system of underground corridors and retain stores has been of interest to me. It's a fascinating idea! Whether you're reading it from a Jungian standpoint, a neo-Marxist perspective, or you just like to look at people, there is an almost inexhaustible amount of food for thought in this underground city. I took some time recently to fully explore the system and attempt to capture some of its moments with my camera.

The PATHway from the Eatons Centre to Bell Trinity is a beautiful 1970's essay in diffused lighting and materials.

This is one of the finest moments in the PATH, at Roy Thompson Hall.

This is underneath Mies Van der Rohe's TD towers.

The retail in the PATH seek to satisfy the every need of these harried commuters: music, food, new shoes, flowers, jewelry, books, magazines, coffee, etc. etc. . .

From the suburbs on the GO train to the station through the corridors, fill up your coffee cup at the Starbucks, fill up your wallet at the ATM, up the elevator to the office. Down again at 10:00 for another coffee. Which food court should we go to today for lunch?
