The Transformation of a Post-Communist Country Documented in Haunting Photos

tamas-dezso-7

For the last three years, Tamas Dezso has been chronicling the decay and rot of Romania. This former member of the communist Soviet Union is losing both is ancestral heritage and beliefs as the country transforms and its industrial might that was built during the forced labor era of Soviet rule. Everywhere Tamas turned his camera found signs of the rapid changes flowing through the country. Tamas has a deep desire to capture the remnants of the country’s heritage before it disappears into dust. Dezso traveled to tiny villages and towns, many with only a handful of residents remaining. In the background you could see the towering remnants of factories that now lie empty and abandoned.

A slow economic resurgence has begun in some parts of Romania, but the changes are slow and bring little hope of preserving the old ways of life that are vanishing before our eyes.
