The Stockholm subway has been described as the world's longest art exhibit !
The first line opened in 1950 and today there are over 100 stations. The "regular" tickets are valid for 75min which might be too short if you plan on photographing some stations, so I found the best way to explore was to purchase a 24h travelcard and then to spend a whole evening traveling through the stations. The evening has the double advantage of less people in the subway, so better photo opportunities, and well, you can still spend the day visiting Stockholm outside !
