Photographer Spent An Entire Year Trying To Get Permission To Photograph The Empty Moscow Subway

For two weeks last year, Canadian photographer David Burdeny spent his nights 200 feet underground, shooting the surreal opulence of the Moscow Metro.

As far as he knows, Burdeny is the only professional photographer in the world to have been granted permission to extensively shoot these locations emptied of passengers. Continue »
