Photographer's Note

A view from Bucharest Street (stradă București) in Chișinău, capital of Moldova. This is not the absolute centre of the city, but only a few blocks from it.
Moldova is a former part of the Soviet Union and the poorest country in Europa with a GDP/capita approximately one 30th of that of Sweden or the USA and less than half of that of Albania. The post-Soviet poverty is clearly seen everywhere and even more so in the rural areas than in relatively affluent Chișinău.
