Photographer Alexandra Soldatova created a series of photographs that feature hand-painted bus shelters in Belarus. Each of the images ensures that the focal point is the bus shelter itself.

The shelters were hand-painted by an unknown artist in the 1980s but this photography series re-introduces them to a new generation while showcasing Alexandra Soldatova's immense talent.

The way each shelter is photographed allows the viewer to see the beauty of its mural art as well as its remote location. While traditional bus stops are located in busy cities with modern adverts, these images showcase the unique preservation of hand-painted art in rural areas. In addition, this series celebrates the vast and empty landscape of Belarus and appears both visually striking and eerie.
