RYAN KOPMANS – One day expo 20/6

35156903_10160395619530043_9080797560922177536_oPlease join us for a preview of new work by Canadian/Dutch photographer Ryan Koopmans.

His latest story takes us to an obscure location in the country of Georgia.

The town of Tskaltubo, once a touristical spa destination during the Soviet Union, is home to grandiose buildings that have fallen into abandon and decay.

After the collapse of the USSR in 1991 displaced people from the nearby breakaway region of Abkhazia were relocated to these buildings as a temporary shelter.

Two decades later families still live in the crumbling relics of an ideological past.

Photographs will be shown, drinks will be served, and everyone is welcome.

Ryan Koopmans (BA, MFA) is a photographer who focuses on the relationship between the built environment and our natural world. Celebrated for his architecture photography, he works on both commissioned and personal projects around the world.
