What lies beneath – Photographer brings to life the underground worlds that lie beneath Europe’s most popular tourist attractions
This fascinating photography series encourages people to literally look deeper – bringing to life the worlds that lie beneath some of Europe’s most popular tourist attractions.
Underneath London’s historic St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel, for example, photographer Tomas Sentpetry discovered the London Postal Museum’s Rail Mail – a world many guests at the hotel would not even be aware exists.
In Krawkow, Tomas, 35, discovered salt mines beneath hot spots;in Spain, at the Barrio de Cuevas in Guadix, the photographer documented Europe’s largest cave complex, once home to around 3,000 people.
Tomas photographed the series in April 2018, working in collaboration with Nikon Europe for a series called ‘Look Deeper’.
Going forward, the photographer is considering adding to series, with the underground worlds of Romania currently being looked into.
Tomas, who lives in London, said: “We were looking to show to travellers that there is more than just the normal tourist destinations that you see on post cards and that there is a whole other world beneath the surface ready to be discovered.
“My favourite discoveries were definitely Guadix which I want to go back to and explore some more.”
