robert polidori – cold war era bunkers

talking about nice house photographed by great photographer, there is this not so well known story by robert polidori on the cold war shelters that some crazy americans built somewhere in the midwest in case of a nuclear attack! it was shot around 2003 i think but never got the attention deserved. it’s so over the top and ridiculous that you don’t know if you should smile or cry. can’t find much more of this story on the net but i have a much more extended crop somewhere, if anybody’s interested i will make the effort…

“The underground complex of Girard B. Henderson was completed in 1978, five years before his death. The elaborate bomb shelter is located beneath a typical two-story suburban house in Las Vegas. Although the house was later sold, the shelter is still intact and is occasionally rented out for corporate events and parties.
