Photographer Shows ‘What Lies Beneath’ Modern Cities

Urban historian, explorer and photographer Steve Duncan has been bringing us images from the little-known underground world that exists beneath the major cities of the world for years.

Through his fascinating pictures, he gave those of us who dwell aboveground a glimpse into the dark, forbidding, but very intriguing, networks of sewers, tunnels and subways just under our feet.

From the catacombs of Paris to the underground rivers of Moscow, Duncan has traveled the globe to investigate and bring awareness to these under-valued historical sites.

By “peeling back the layers of a city to see what’s underneath”, he has managed to capture little-seen—and often, unexpected—scenes from the underworld.

If trekking through murky tunnels is not your cup of tea, you can still get a taste of subterranean adventure via Duncan’s beautiful photographs.
