The Weird And Wonderful Bus Stops From Soviet Era Russia

The Soviet era in Russia is known for its lack of civil liberties, business and industry being controlled by the Soviet government and the Communist party ruling with an iron fist.

But for some reason when it came to building bus stops local architects were given carte blanche, which allowed them to explore different artistic styles with the structures they helped bring to life.

Photographer Christopher Herwig spent over a decade documenting these artistic shelters in the Soviet sea of concrete, traveling over 8,000 miles through 14 countries and shooting all the stops along the way.

Christopher's photos of these unique and eye pleasing structures is about to be released by FUEL Publishing in the book Soviet Bus Stops, featuring "the most comprehensive and diverse collection of Soviet bus stop design ever assembled".

I remember going through these with the kids when we first saw them. We each had our favourite, but most of all we wanted ours to be as weird and whacky. Less easy in Britain where we're often a bit short of space, but I'd love to see a bit of freedom to play like this.
