Canadian photographer David Burdeny brough the dream of many subway passengers to life – he found himself in the subway all alone. In Moscow and St. Petersburg. And look how he saw those subway stations.

    • Yep, they took this shoot from CNN web, it was there like three years ago. Supposedly, the photos were made at night, the metro in Moscow is closed from 00 AM to 5 AM

    • First:There are programs in Lightroom,and in Photoshop where You can take the multiple scenes,and after the program erases every moving object,person from the images and connects them in one image.
      Second: By using the RAW on Your camera,and very long exposure with the very dark filters,the people and other moving objects will not be seen in a short period of time they were on the station.
      Than You connect the colors with the light and:VOILA !

  1. Yes with the St Petersburg one, it’s a monument that you use with a lot of pleasure.
    The Paris one is comparatively a rat hole !

  2. The red marble is from Finland. Hitler order it from finland and after inspection they pay it but becouse ww2 they not ship them to Germany. After WW2 end Russia claim all german possession from finland and haul them to moscow and use them in these subways and maybe some other great constructions too.

  3. I lived and studied in the USA but also spent a lot of time in Russia, also traveled on the metros of London, Paris and many other European cities as well as a few in the Middle East. Let’s just say, I’ve seen a lot of metros over the years. Moscow and St Petersburg just stand out completely from the rest in the beauty of their underground. And it is not just the metro stations from the Soviet times – many of the modern stations are just as beautiful. For example, Govorovo, which opened in 2018, is pretty cool. Another favourite (opened in 2003) and also not shown here, is the one at Park Pobedy (Victory Park) in Moscow. When exploring a new city, I often feel that using the metro causes you to miss too much of the city itself. In Moscow and St Petersburg, you miss a lot if you do NOT take the metro occasionally.
