Publisher's Description
A voluminous deep dive into Moscow's famous metro system
The latest photo series from Austrian multidisciplinary artist Katharina Gruzei (born 1983) documents her longstanding fascination with the famous Moscow metro. With a network of 250 miles of lines, exceptionally deep tunnels and stations, and nearly nine million passengers a day, it is one of the most heavily used underground subway systems in the world.
Gruzei decided to descend underground and capture the metro over the course of several years. Here, in color and black-and-white photography, across 400 pages, she captures in depth the diverse faces of transit workers and commuters, bustling underground tunnels and the exquisite architecture of the subway stations that expresses the former Soviet Union’s brutalist aesthetics and socialist iconography. “Mir Metro” is Russian for “Metro World,” evoking the sheer scale and magic of the Moscow subway system.
