TORONTO – How well do you know your world cities? Even the most seasoned traveller is sure to be stumped by these “naked maps” by artist and urban planner Neil Freeman.
His ‘Fake is the new real’ collection, an ongoing compilation of work since 2000, includes a series of city subway maps, all drawn to the same scale. Stripped down to the bare minimum, these simple yet fascinating maps perfectly showcase the differences between cities and how some are far more advanced than others when it comes to public transportation.
