Saint Basil’s Cathedral, Moscow Photograph by Izzet Keriba, IML Image Group
“Legend has it that St. Basil’s Cathedral’s beauty cost its architect his eyes. The Moscow monument was built between 1555 and 1561 by Ivan the Terrible to commemorate a victory over the Mongols, and he’s said to have blinded the architect so that he couldn’t create a rival masterpiece. The Russian St. Basil the Blessed lies interred within the church.”

This photo series by Alejandro Cartagena shows the life of some workers in Monterrey, Mexico who carpool to work by cramming themselves into a truck bed. It’s sort of hilarious until you realize this is life—lying down before work in a truck is their snooze and hot shower. One of these photos is currently shortlisted for Sony World Photo Awards.
