The Russian Metro is a lesson in Russia’s history and architecture.   As you make your way through the system, the history of the city’s past eighty years manifests itself before your eyes. The stations range in design, from palatial baroque marble and granite structures to modern iron and glass, revealing the aeshetics ideals , hopes and failures of communist Russia.

Purposefully Juxtaposed next to Russia’s finest cultural intuitions, these images reveal that these stations were conceived of as more than transitional spaces.   Instead, they were to be experienced as underground palaces, an extension of the urban fabric; a deliberate ideological move to eulogise the young Soviet country






 

My photography is discovery-driven and, like many photographers, I have an intense curiosity about the world around me. In this instance, I am photographing the landscape as a sort of dream state, where we float above and wander through its geology with no prescribed destination.  

I see each image as a specific essay on place, a survey of terrestrial phenomenon and the traces we as humans leave behind.  From the piles of sand infused with sacred significance to the ancient hillsides meticulously terraced from valley to peak, they seem to simply ask, “How do you, as human beings, experience the earth?”
