Ramin Mazur

The Problem
2019

Left Bank

Being born and raised in Transnistria, Ramin wanted to document it since the first years in photography. He started his work from depicting Transnistria the same way as foreign media shows it but soonly realized how cliché it was. The author decides to take a different route and abstract himself from the post-soviet oddity of an unrecognized state. Instead, he focuses on reflecting on his unique perception of this region - as a home, as his childhood place.
