Usually associated with low-quality pastries and overpriced confectionary, the humble petrol station is a roadside staple in nearly every country in the world. Some architects have had a pop at redesigning the standard station layout, mainly in places like Beverly Hills or Texas, but really I think we can all agree that it’s kind of perfect the way it is. Photographer Sebastian Reiser agrees, and has begun a very pleasing project documenting standard-model, unembellished gas stations of the world. It’s early days so he hasn’t got many, but fingers crossed there’s many more of these Hopper-esque beauties to come.
