Disappearing Tbilisi

Tbilisi is full of buildings that are so ruined that quite soon they may be either vanished away completely by time and nature, or restored, repaired or rebuilt, which sometimes is even worse. That is why I want to capture these objects in their fragile and transitory state. Half destroyed, decayed, abandoned structures, what makes them even more beautiful, more unique and more interesting.

  1. I love your shots of Tbilisi! It’s so true that many of the city’s buildings feel like they could fall down around you at any moment. If you’re interested, I have two new posts about the area – one is about Tbilisi and the other is about day trips through the surrounding region. I’d love your thoughts!
