Underneath the streets of Moscow, there’s a whole other world of opulent architecture for visitors to discover: the Moscow Metro. David Burdeny, an architect-turned-photographer from Canada, believes that he was the first photographer ever to be allowed to shoot the stations after-hours, when they were closed to passengers. The Moscow Metro, which opened in 1935, was designed to be one big Soviet propaganda project. Burdeny’s photo series, “Russia: A Bright Future,” will be on display at the Jennifer Kostuik gallery in Vancouver.
