Stockholm Metro – 100 Stations
The Stockholm Metro system consists of 100 stations (in use). It has long been known to the city's citizens and visiting tourists that the metro system has many beautiful stations and surroundings, much thanks to the generous space dedicated to artistic expressions in and around the stations and the free guided art tours arranged on Thursdays and Sundays. But in a city where we rarely think we have reason to visit stations other than those we for various reasons have to, many fantastic places remain unseen.
What began as a documentation of all the stations over time became an exploration of the parts of the city we had never visited before and an attempt to capture the places that are familiar with new eyes.
The Stockholm Metro – 100 Stations book offers you a unique opportunity to discover and explore every single station through 110+ photos!

Why we need your help
The entirety of this project is handled in house. Studio Reko does not outsource any elements of the photography, design or editing and every cent of the funding from this campaign will go directly to the physical production of the book.
This project has been made during our time off from the daily studio work i.e. late nights and weekends. Your support allows us to finish what we started over three years ago, any assistance is a huge help and greatly appreciated.
If you can't donate you can help us by spreading the word about this project by sharing it with your friends, colleagues, and contacts.

Risks and challenges
The photographs are edited and the book is designed and ready for print so completing our funding goal will ensure a prompt release. However, as with any publication, unforeseen circumstances in production could push back the release date slightly. We'll be in touch with all contributors with detailed progress reports as we get closer to the big day!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
