Soviet Bus StopsKristoffer Hegnsvad

Canadian photographer Christopher Herwig has a crazy fondness for unusual bus stops dating from the Soviet era. Back then, everything, including architecture, was under strict central authority. Buildings had to be monumental, an ode to communism. But local bus stops occasionally managed to escape this central authority. Follow Herwig on a surprising road trip through Ukraine, Estonia, Georgia, Belarus and Lithuania in search of bus stops of all styles, symbols of small acts of poetic resistance.
