Underground Worlds – Swiss Bunkers

I just received a copy from the Underworld World documentary series produces by Phoenix Television .

Hidden beneath our feet lie extraordinary spaces, caves and tunnels. They’ve been designed and built by us as well formed by nature. But how were they created and adapted? By whom, and why? For centuries, subterranean structures have captured our imagination. Now we’re going further and deeper to unearth the stories, the mysteries and the secrets of Underground Worlds.

The Apollo conquest of space by man

I just wanted to celebrate today the landing of Apollo 11, the spaceflight that first landed humans on the Moon. I remember looking at the event fifty years ago on a black and white television with my grandparents in South of France.

I was so amused to shoot this picture in New York at Union Square with the Flat Iron Building as scenography.
