No Hope, No Fear

Photos taken by artist Shako Berekashvili, during 2007 – 2013, mostly depicting post-apocalyptic reality of one of the suburbian block apartment districts Didi Digomi (Big Digomi) in the Northwestern end of Tbilisi.

Built in the end of 80’s just before Soviet collapse, Didi Digomi used to be one of the most detached residential areas of Tbilisi, surrounded by windy fields, it functioned as a certain type of ghetto, although, mostly, in social terms it did not shelter lowest income people, but rather families who moved here from downtown, lured by bigger apartments and better utilities.

As Tbilisi is expanding, once distant Didi Digomi became attractive spot for construction of new apartment buildings and private houses. Although, this post does not depict the latter stage, but rather the district at its grey period.
