The photo series aptly titled Moscow Metro by Alena Nikiforova portrays this subway system as an underground museum and the models as works of art. It is not hard to imagine this is the case since each station captured in the photos are stunningly ornate while the women are draped in goddess-like outfits and the men in dapper attire.

A project for an exhibition in Paris, the Moscow Metro by Alena Nikiforova photo series shows that there is beauty in all surroundings. In this case, it provides a fresh perspective of the Moscow subway to those who use it day in and day out. Here, the Moscow Metro is made to be more sculptural and artistic.
