An exhibition at St Pancras International station in London offers glimpses of the world photographed from train windows

An exhibition of photographs taken from train windows is on show at London’s St Pancras International station.

World Off Track features images of landscapes and people taken by New York-based photographer Jarret Schecter, and marks the tenth anniversary of The Denan Project, a non-profit organisation which provides healthcare, education, and assistance to disadvantaged people in the developing world.


The images were taken during train journeys in countries including the US, China, Russia, India, Brazil and Japan, among others. Through his images, Schecter presents a socio-economic commentary of the world that is literally “off track”, and asks London commuters to reflect on lives far removed from their own.

World Off Track, curated by Hannah Watson of Trolley Books and Emma Blau, is on show in the Market Area of St Pancras International station until 18 September.
