“Tunnel Vision” is a new series of photos by Dutch photographer Patrick van Dam, who visited car tunnels in Holland and captured mesmerizing views from directly in the middle of the lanes.
“I have a fascination for tunnels,” Van Dam writes. “Driving through a tunnel, I feel as if I’m in a sci-fi movie and my vessel has just been launched into space from the mothership.”
“I love the slated concrete, the symmetry and the never-ending perspective,” the photographer continues. “It’s pleasing to the eye. The lighting, the shape and the place it takes you to makes each tunnel unique. A tunnel is an essential artery in the flow of traffic, an undervalued piece of engineering and design.”
