Photographer's Note

A slice of communist block built in the 80s. Good, Quick & Cheap was the motto by which the state owned NSHN (National Building Enterprise)built these flats. They look worse then they are as they have all necessary amenities in them such as electric, water etc.and so far they have resisted medium size earthquakes probably as they have reinforces concrete holding the thing together.

On the social aspect these places are like behives buzzing with noises of people talking to each other. They were not built to promote idividualism of course but these places do force community life as you can never be lonely if you live in one of them!

These buildings have no future whatsoever. Already many of them have been demolished accross th country. People like either living in modern flats or big detached houses. These blocks are there mostly for those who cannot afford anothing else.
