1996 - Vail Pass

This shot was taken at Vail Pass, while Shem and I were waiting for my car to be fixed in Vail. We were driving my 91 VW Fox from VT to CA, when the alternator had died in Nebraska on Easter Sunday. We bought another battery for it, drove 300 miles and tried to get it fixed in Denver, but of course it was Easter Sunday and no garages were open. So we decided to roll the dice and headed up the hill to Vail. The whole drive up I was sweating about that long tunnel we'd have to pass through, and how if the car battery died, it would shut the whole car down, lights and all, and we'd be stuck in the middle of the tunnel and probably get rammed into in the darkness and die. On Easter. Anyway, we made it, the car quit just as we pulled into Vail, and pushed it right into a service station. The next day I shot this image. Ali Goulet has awesome style.

What inspired that?
Probably some of the super-tech shit that hinders snowboarding culture from moving forward because it's so acrobatic. That stuff is crazy to watch and I love that it exists, but it seems like they're trying to make snowboarding a viewer-oriented sport instead of a cool activity that people can participate in. And there's no culture that comes with that. There's nothing for people to identify with. So I wanted Yesterday to sort of be an antithesis to all that.

Meet the Guy with the World’s Largest Collection of Soviet Bus Stop Photos

VICE: How did you get obsessed with Soviet bus stops?
Chris Herwig: They're just really cool. I expected that they'd have one standard bus stop, a mould. You need a bus stop? Ok we'll build you a standard bus stop.

A friend in Latvia said back in the day you could go from one end of the Soviet Union to the other, and you'd go to a canteen and order a chicken kiev, and it would be the exact same chicken kiev that you'd get in Riga, or freakin Vladivostock. It was like they only had one chicken kiev, you know? Everything was like, you know...

Yeah. If it was going to be crap it was going to be crap for everyone. For some reason this isn't the case for bus stops. It was an opportunity for artists to make money, one of the only options for them. They grabbed as many materials and ideas as they could and put it all into their bus stops.
