Wired features a set of beautiful photos:
Photographer Tamas Dezso has since 2011 been documenting the disintegrating communist infrastructure left behind in Romania after the Red Giant fell, and the nearby villages still struggling to adapt.
“Symbolic buildings and former factories are disappearing and villages are becoming deserted at an incredible speed, which urges their documentation,”Dezso says. “My aim with this series is to render a world which may disappear forever imperceptibly and very rapidly due to the transitional nature of the era.”
The photos in Notes for an Epilogue aim to capture the sense of isolation and disillusionment, and patience and hope, those in the region feel as many survive on the dwindling resources left behind by the old regime.
