    Waiting for the End of the World Fallout Shelter Tourism (85 Pics)

    Most people travel the world to visit various natural wonders, take a tour of the famous monuments or go in search of authentic cuisine. Richard Ross goes in search of bomb shelters. Armed with his camera, Ross took a five-year journey into the underground world, documenting not only the bomb shelters of the United States, but also examples as far as Vietnam, Russia, England, Turkey, and even Switzerland, where citizens are required by law to have a bomb shelter. In 2004, he published his book, Waiting for the End of the World and in his foreword, he writes about a realisation he came to while working on the project.

    “Shelters are the architecture of failure– the failure of moderation, politics, communication, diplomacy, and sustaining humanity. They represent the ultimate in optimism and belief in individual survival and paradoxically the ultimate in pessimism– the expectation of the destruction of humanity.”
