Bomb Shelter Interiors


Self-preservation is something that most humans take quite seriously, and that a few take to extremes. Faced with the real or imagined threat of attacks levied by nuclear, biological, and chemical weaponry, some people opt to head 25 feet underground, surrounded by concrete and complex air-filtration systems, surviving off rations and waiting, so to speak, for the end of the world.

That's the subject of Waiting for the End of the World by Richard Ross. Ross spent five years traveling over three continents, photographing the interiors of bomb shelters.
