Bus Stops Of The Soviet Union: A Photo Study

WAITING at a bus stop in the former Soviet Union was much like waiting at a dolorous bus stop in the UK, only with better seats, no traffic cones on that roof, a roof and local art not defined by a massive spurting genitalia and directions to shag Baz at 4am.

Christopher Herwig has recorded bus stops of the Soviet Union on his camera. He tells the Times:

“In the Baltic countries and the former Soviet Union there was a lot more creativity in the bus stops than in Western Europe. I was quite amazed at how imagination was going into these edifices. In each town they’d put their own individual touch onto their local bus stop by hiring local artisans to decorate them. A lot of the architecture in the former Soviet Union is quite conservative and functional. What amazed me was that some of these shelters were not functional at all… A lot of these bus stops are in the absolute middle of nowhere, on some country road where there isn’t even a town close by. Some of them aren’t being used anymore and are run down and falling apart. I want to capture them before they’re lost forever.”

Then And Now: Photos Celebrating Human Change

THEN and Now is a gallery of photos that are touching without being mawkish or overly sentimental. They show the subject in the same pose as they struck in their youth. Have they changed? Have things improved? And do these photos do as all good art does: say things about the audience. You don’t think much about them. You think more about yourself…
