Photos from Underground
As a kid I loved the books of David Macaulay (Castle, Pyramid, etc.), and his Underground opened my eyes to hidden worlds that lie deep beneath city streets. Now photographer Joe Nishizawa reveals the huge, otherworldly spaces below Tokyo in this photo essay for PingMag. Additional images are available on Joe’s site.
In a similar vein, I used to love visiting the captured U-505 submarine on display in Chicago, and now a Russian photographer reveals the subterranean world of a former Soviet submarine pen. [Via]
