Description:
People have been preparing for End Times since the beginning of time. Whether to protect themselves from nuclear attack or natural disasters, people around the world have built underground shelters of remarkable variety. Far from simply providing basic needs of survival, these structures are powerful expressions of personal and cultural identity. Richard Ross's fascinating photographs transport you to this strangely beautiful underground world, a mesmerizing alternative universe of bomb shelters from around the world. This one of a kind collection also includes an entertaining and perceptive interview by author Sarah Vowell.
