Next Stop Atlantic

  • Photography can often dance along a thin line between art and documentation, artist Stephen Mallon takes full advantage of this. Mallon’s newest series, Next Stop Atlantic, takes an intimate look at what happens to New York City Subway cars when they are retired. Mallon captures these massive hunks of steal being dumped into the ocean to create an artificial reef in the Atlantic Ocean.

    New York City Subway Cars have always seemed to play an interesting roll in history of art. Immediately I am reminded of the golden age of graffiti when a writer could go All City.  Next Stop Atlantic seems to remind us about the history that these Subway Cars carry with them. Being able to ride along to witness these once great machines being retired must be nothing short of fascinating. We’ll have to find out how Mallon gains access to such events.
