Photographer's Note

Detail of the Facade of the House of Parliment formely known as the House of the People by the former comunist dictator Ceausescu. It's the second larger building in the world - surface-wise and for its construction, Ceausescu ordered that all houses, churches and other buildings forming part of the Old bucharest in that area - to be demolished; a total of approx 1/3 of Bucharest at that time was bulldozed to make way to the his megalomaniac vision.
