Moscow Underground - Joel K Photography

Moscow Underground

Moscow Underground takes you into the Moscow metro system where people move swiftly, anonymously, rushing to their destination under this crowded metropolis. The camera’s long exposure captures traces of them as they race by, registering only the transience of their presence — each set of shadowy footsteps a passerby oblivious to their imposing surroundings. The vestiges of the USSR — indifferent to change — hang eerily on the walls and over archways, both ornate and domineering. Are these symbols of a bygone regime? What aspects linger still? What of those who walked these halls mere decades ago?
