It was my interest in abandoned buildings that brought me to Kirovsk, a small Russian town in the Arctic circle. The town is home to the ruins of a Stalin-era train station which remains 24 years after its closure in the 1990s.

Abandoned buildings are common in this part of Russia, the result of steep population decline following the collapse of the Soviet Union.
