Life after the fall of communism
Offering an intimate insight into life on the fringes of an evolving society, Dezso’s haunting photographers record the reality of hidden communities living between East and West. With a measured focus upon the decaying ruins of the Soviet legacy, Dezso captures derelict factories and deserted ghost towns as symbols of the gradual and tragic loss of age-old traditions.
