Moscow Circular

The Moscow Metro is a subterranean network that facilitates the rapid transit of passengers beneath the city. The circular line acts as a twenty-kilometre ring around the centre and is the only line that runs in a perpetual circular motion. In just 29 minutes, it orbits the city before repeating the process continually. The unrelenting journey of the circular metro train is without end; not unlike the journey of the people above ground, caught within the repetitive cycle of events that shape life in the city. Starting at the Kremlin, I walked Moscow’s circular metro line above ground, to explore this relationship between the city and its inhabitants.
