Time to introduce a new project of mine: Abandoned
(All Images Copyright 2013 © by Johann Brandstätter/ JB Photography)
Here in Bulgaria, hundreds of villages and hamlets are either struck from the register after all its inhabitants moved away, or are registered with zero permanent inhabitants. I am not only working on a database including all those forgotten places, I am also travelling to many of those settlements, trying to show what they are: ghost villages full of memories of forgotten lives and lost chances.
