"This is an abandoned railway station in Abkhazia, former Russian territory. It stays untouched since the collapse of USSR - the railway connection of Abkhazia and Russia stopped and railway station left out of demand so nature could take over the left-overs of Soviet architecture"

La guerre froide est une période absolument fascinante sur tant de points qu’elle en devient… imposante. J’ai toujours trouvé cette période curieuse et des films comme Stalker (un de mes all-time favourites), Everything is illuminated ou encore Dr Strangelove alimentent ma passion pour cette époque. J’ai récemment lu Watchmen et même si cette période n’est absolument pas approchée d’un point de vue historique dans le graphic novel, elle a ramené cette période au premier plan de mon esprit.

Les paysages de l’ex URSS sont tragiquement beaux. Il y a quelque chose dans leur décrépitude, dans les bâtiments effondrés, dans les herbes qui envahissent les places publiques, dans la brume qui s’accroche aux structures de métal rouillées, dans les livres écrits en cyrillique éparpillés aux quatre vents, qui rend l’ex URSS infiniment belle. Il est né d’une catastrophe horrible une beauté fragile et fascinante.

Si je pouvais, j’irais photographier cette beauté indescriptible. En attendant, je regarde le travail des autres.

"We’ve had recently an abandoned railway in Abkhazia, abandoned as a result of USSR collapse when new “independent” republics couldn’t maintain the complicated and high-cost USSR legacy objects. But this one was abandoned long before the USSR collapse, it was doomed to be abandoned from the beginning. It was built by a personal Stalin’s order in the middle of nowhere - deep inside Northern Siberia between Salekhard city and Igarka town. It was not connected with any other Russian Federal Railway System and the purpose of it still is not very clear, so as a senseless toy it way abandoned pretty soon and now rusts accessible only with a helicopter."

Some other masterpieces of Russian medieval wooden architecture were found abandoned.  Some of them look like they are just left - even some furniture stays on its places. The reason they are so undisturbed - it stays deep inside the Russian forests.
