Alexandra Soldatova is a photographer from Belarus, she photographed the artistically decorated bus stops in her country for 2 years and came up with this wonderful series. Make sure to visit her website for more!
“In Belarus, my home country, people love when everything looks neat, clean and beautiful. I decided to search for origins of this fact. So I researched the environment where people normally live and I was looking for rather outstanding and at the same time very common things which could influence the esthetic feeling of a person. This project is about decorating reality. All these paintings on the bus stops are made through local authorities by unknown “artists” with the only purpose to beautify empty landscape.” (Alexandra Soldatova)
