Photographer Transforms Layers of Torn New York Subway Posters into Abstract Art

For his latest project titled "Subtext", photographer Wyatt Gallery shot a series of images capturing the vacant advertising spaces in the New York City subway where decades-old layers of torn posters, paint and graffiti are revealed. Gallery’s photos transform the unintentionally made tableaux into works of art that reference the masterful paintings by American abstract expressionism. Speaking about the project he said, "What really excites me about this work is that I have no control over what the wall looks like or the composition, and that none of these walls exist anymore and will never be seen again in this form. In a way, it’s really “unmade” or readymade street art."
