Limited Edition Photo Book by Christopher Herwig Available on Kickstarter

Screen Shot 2014-03-06 at 4.02.49 PM

Photographs of Soviet bus stops, done by Aurora photographer Christopher Herwig, recently attracted considerable interest around the world, and now for the first time, are available in book-form. Copies of  Herwig’s new photo book “Soviet Bus Stops” are available on Kickstarter for the next two weeks. Herwig is seeking support to “immortalize this incredible modern art form.”

Herwig tells of his experience with Soviet bus stops: “Ever since stumbling upon them while biking to St. Petersburg in 2002 I have been hunting bus stops in remote corners of the former Soviet Union. I have covered more than 30,000 km by car, bus and taxi in 13 countries documenting these wonderfully strange works of art, created behind the Iron Curtain.”

The bus stops show the range of public art from the Soviet era and give a rare glimpse into the creative minds of the time. Huffington Post calls the book “fascinating” and Bears and vodka write that it is a “delicate balance between modern art and clinical insanity.” The photographs are accompanied by research from Moscow-based journalist Slava Kuzminsky.

PetaPixel Interview with Andrew Peacock

Screen Shot 2014-02-03 at 12.16.16 PM

A few weeks ago, Aurora photographer Andrew Peacock gained international attention for his documentation of the Russian research vessel M.V. Akademik Shokalskiy trapped in Antarctic ice.  Of this recent event, Andrew says, “For that slow news period between Christmas and New Year it’s likely that I was the most published photographer in the world in both the press and web news sites. It was all a bit surreal given that I was stuck on a ship at the bottom of the world.” A few days ago, PetaPixel published an interview with Andrew, spurred by the photos taken on this trip.

Andrew discusses his career as a doctor, his first experiences with photography, and his world travels. He also speaks fondly of his friend and fellow-photographer, Aurora’s Corey Rich.
