O'Hare underpass blog

No matter how many times I walk through the underpass that leads to terminal C at O’Hare Airport, I will never stop being amazed by the beautiful reflection of colors all around and the way the light moves inside the tunnel.  Sometimes when I have time to stop, I usually end clicking pictures of it and I always end up finding an excitingly new angle or composition. I am not only mesmerized by the lights but even capturing the passengers in motion is also equally exciting. The light creates reflections that prove to be a great subject for photography for a photographer from Chicago.

The neon installations in the connecting tunnel between the open spaces of B and C inside Terminal 1 are fashioned by Michael Hayden, a Canadian artist and are known as Sky’s the Limit.

Airports all around the world display artworks designed by architects who want show their best designs at airports to give a different feel to the people in transition. Art attracts attention, or rather, it demands to be seen and in my opinion an airport is the best place for both the art and people. The Underpass at Chicago O’Hare Airport gives off that cheerful feeling and adds light to a tunnel built underground. It is a light worth showcasing as a piece of art.  In my images I have tried to capture that attractive feel that the lights add to this tunnel and give it a life of its own.
