Subway stations may not seem like the scariest of places, unless you’re looking through the lens of German photographer Nick Frank.In a series called “Subway,” which Frank shared with us, the Munich U-Bahn resembles something out of ‘2001: A Space Odyssey.’

The empty stations and tunnels are by turns beautiful and frightening, though there are splashes of colour, too.
