Vahram Aghasyan, Ghost City, Armenia, 2005-07

Vahram Aghasyan’s series “Ghost City” documents Gyumri in Armenia, whose population numbers 149,000; the city achieved renown when a terrible earthquake struck it in 1988. To help people who had lost their homes, in 1989, the Soviet Government decided to build a new residential neighbourhood, ten minutes’ drive from the city centre. Construction commenced in 1989, but even after the passing of eighteen years and much money has been invested in the project, it is as yet incomplete and the quarter is utterly deserted. The buildings have been left to the mercies of time and the forces of nature, and will probably disappear at some time or other.
