Photographer Antonio Faccilongo’s photos border on claustrophobic. He spent time chronicling individuals who either reside or hang out in old atomic shelters under Beijing. For residents, these bunkers are a fraction of the price of traditional real estate, making them an attractive option for lower-income workers. It's estimated that a million people live in these spaces, and Antonio's images show the cross-section of people who frequent these austere, often dilapidated habitats: a college girl in a trendy camel-colored coat, beret, and manicured nails; a real-estate agent in a full suit playing pool with work buddies; a 3-year old child who calls the shelter home; and a student at work in a subterranean school.
