Christopher Herwig rode every Metro in the former Soviet Union, photographing each station. From opulent marble stations in St Petersburg to brutal minimalist platforms in Kiev, these are his favourites...
Following his best-selling quest for Soviet Bus Stops, Christopher Herwig has completed a subterranean expedition photographing the stations of each Metro network of the former USSR.
The result is his latest photographic book, Soviet Metro Stations. Published by Fuel and including an essay on the history of the Soviet Metro system by leading architecture, politics and culture author Owen Hatherley, you can order your copy on Amazon now.
