This is a project about my home town of Russe, in North Eastern Bulgaria. In it I explore its current landscapes, a direct result from the fifty years the country spent as a Soviet satellite state. The idea for this project was halted by the outbreak of Covid as I was meant to meet and interview people from different generations to discuss the city's history and how altered and influenced it was by the Communist party. I intended to explore the progress of said history's being more and more neglected and forgotten by the younger generations which is a nation-wide phenomena and has resulted in a very politically polarized society due to people's unwillingness to learn from the past and face it for what it really was - a horribly scarring regime that has left the country in a state of false democracy, a struggling economy and significant government corruption. Therefore, I set to explore the physical evidence that would help me portray the outdated mindset that many Bulgarians share and which acts as a signpost to the country's inability to transform itself into a truly European country. I have photographed everyday landscapes that encapsulate the atmosphere of what it feels like to live in a country with such complex history and in a society whose relationship with its history is very opinionated and hard to understand.
