In his series 16th Century Tube Passengers, photographer Matt Crabtree secretly recreates his fellow London tube commuters as characters from Flemish paintings.
The photographer secretly snaps photos of unsuspecting Londoners and gives them a 16th-century portrait feel. There’s not much editing involved as the idea itself is enough to inspire the viewer to use their imagination.
Matt takes all portraits with his phone, retouches them on it and uploads it whilst on the underground journey.
“All these shots are taken, retouched and sent from my phone whilst on the tube journey,’ he said. “I’m capturing the most of mundane commuter moments with a quiet, classical beauty.”
