Canadian photographer David Burdeny is the first photographer ever to access to Russian subway’s tunnels after hours, when nobody invades the place. These stations, similar to palaces and churches, classical and modern at once, are from the 30’s and have been described as the most extravagant architectural projects of the Staline’s era. The concepts “svet” (light) and “sveltloe budushchee” (a bright future) have inspired the building of these stations ; they have been described as an “artificial metro sun”. This series named Russia: A Bright Future was captured in Moscow and St Peterburg, and is exhibited at the Jennifer Kostuik gallery in Vancouver until 8th November.
