Chris Herwig's Soviet bus stops - a journey and an obsession

From Labour Day, 12:00 pm on 23 October 2017

Canadian photographer Chris Herwig's books, Soviet Bus Stops 1 & 2, reveal the stunning and unexpected architecture of the bus stops peppering the Soviet landscape from Latvia to Russia. A snap decision 15 years ago to cycle 3000km from London to St Petersburg in Russia became a challenge to take an interesting photo every hour. The images of the extraordinary structures that shelter commuters across all these former states that once made up the USSR have become two books, Soviet Bus Stops volumes 1 & 2, published by Fuel Design.
