    Awaiting Sascha Nau

    "Leipzig got a lot of attention in the last years. Many people are visiting the city each year and many of those are deciding to stay. Buildings that were abandoned after the collapse of the GDR are now being rebuild and repopulated. Still there are many places left to tell stories about the past. We visited these places and tried to convey the atmosphere of these mostly abandoned buildings into photographic pictures.  If you are interested in further information, please feel free to contact us or visit us at regentaucher.com.”

    Dust Nadav Kander

    For Dust Nadav Kander photographed the desolated landscapes of the Aral Sea and captured fascinating images of the restricted military zones of Priozersk and Kurtchatov, which did not appear on any map until well after the end of the Cold War.

The bombs were exploded in a remote but still popu­lated area, and covert studies were made of the ef­fects of the radiation on the unsuspecting inhabi­tants. Kander writes how the ticking of the Geiger counter on his belt while he photographed reminded him that he should not become too enthralled with the aesthetic and painterly allure of the crumbling ruins.” Text via.
