Photographer Richard Ross's photo-documentation of the quirky, somewhat paranoid underground world of 'shelter culture.' Here, his subjects include the Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia, where a shelter was built to house the entire U.S. Congress, shelters in Beijing, where the Chinese built a complete city underground, and Hittite shelters in Eastern Turkey built some 4,000 years ago. These ethereal images show spaces that provide only the barest necessities for survival yet maintain a level of idiosyncratic personality. Illus., 100 color photographs. 128p.
