All photographs were taken at an abandoned locomotive depot in Sofia, seemingly foregone by the authorities.

This type of place, buried in Eastern Europe nothingness, are in themselves a direct criticism to existing political systems, but also a beacon for the perseverance of creation, both artistic and universal.
