Soviet Bus Stops
A fascinating and entertaining road trip that takes in the most bizarre structures from the former Soviet Union: bus stops. All architecture in the union was strictly controlled by the state, but bus stops were insignificant enough to escape attention. That allowed every local architect, talented or not, to give free rein to their creativity. Over the past 13 years, the Canadian photographer Christopher Herwig travelled almost 40,000 kilometres to photograph and film these gems of Soviet history. That yielded not only architectural images, but also entertaining encounters and stories – only possible in the vast landscape of the former satellite Soviet states.
