Slovensky Raj

An ideal,

A dream,

A Slovak Paradise.

 

Where people still dream of a 'wonderful unified' Europe. Slowly, along the economical liberalisation they realise that the values of the 'West' may have been idealized. Older generations especially find it hard and difficult to adapt. They often long back for the known and trusted omni-present government.

 

I have photographed what I've encountered along the road in post-communist Slovakia. Took turns and side-roads that looked promising or challenging. What you see is only a fragment of reality, a detail. My series is a personal interpretation of Slovakia and the things, scopes, focuses that appeal to me. The everyday life that may fascinate an outsider.
