In a series called "Subway," which Frank shared with us, the Munich U-Bahn resembles something out of '2001: A Space Odyssey.'
The empty stations and tunnels are by turns beautiful and frightening, though there are splashes of color, too.

This is no ordinary airport interior. Chiangi has an entire wall with plants that are rotated in from the airport
greenhouse.
