Roadside Wonders of the Soviet by Herwig.

Standing stark against silent desert backdrops like sculptures made for Burning Man, these leftover Soviet structures are actually bus stops scattered throughout one of the most sparsely populated regions on Earth.

Photographer Christopher Herwig followed bus routes from Estonia to Armenia to photograph odd little roadside shelters in former Soviet satellite states for a new book.

  1. Interesting post. Thank you for sharing. I have a big question for the first sculpture. Do you have any clue that what it is used for or for purely artistic purpose? I am thinking about a solar energy project 🙂
    Again, thank you and wish you all the best.
