Мозаїка "Українська пісня" (1967) на фасаді аптеки №1 у Києві. Автор – Степан Кириченко. На сьогодні не так багато робіт Степана Андрійовича – одного з найцікавіших українських художників-монументалістів – залишилося у вільному доступі. Наприклад, його робота на постаменті генерала Ватутіна була знищена декілька років тому, мозаїчне панно "Червоноармійці" на станції метро Палац Україна було закрите рік тому (fb.com/Decommunise/posts/990571191018603), а мозаїка "Аврора" на однойменному кінотеатрі була знищена у середині 2000-х разом з будівлею. #decommunised #ukrainiansovietmosaics #kyiv #київ

The Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong was once the most densely populated place on earth, a teeming hive of interlinking high-rises that few dared to enter but 33,000 people called home. Demolished two decades ago, the virtually lawless labyrinth is now a park.

Paul Tang Kam -cheung was a teenager when he joined the Hong Fat Shan triad gang – later known as the 14K – in the 1950s. The gang’s activities included narcotic trafficking, illegal gambling, and operating strip clubs and brothels. Mr. Tang became a heroin addict and did jail time for robbery and drugs. He moved out of the Walled City after converting to Christianity and becoming a pastor.

Galpao da Araujo Barreto – a testimony of a place that no longer exists

A project by Sebastian Liste
















This project is a testimony of a place that no longer exists.

In 2003, dozens of families occupied the “Galpao da Araujo Barreto”, an abandoned chocolate factory in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. Prior to establishing themselves in this place, these families lived throughout the dangerous streets of the city, but tired of living with so much violence and despair they came together to seize this deserted factory, which lay in ruins, and they transformed it into a home for themselves.

Since 2009, I have been documenting the community of Barreto. From my studies in sociology, I understood that this was a unique community. This vast subculture within the greater city became one extended family. They created a microcosm in which the problems of drugs, prostitution and violence could be tackled with the support of the community.

Little Island – The story of a man who chose to live alone on a greek island.


Little Island is a short documentary about the story of a man who chose to abandon all other life and for almost 40 years live on a small greek island in the south of Crete. Through the years, he became one with the environment and managed to survive despite the many difficulties. When his stay on the island is disturbed by the tenacity of the forestry commission he is still not willing to leave the island. A person’s destiny always lies in his worst fears. And unlike all our worst fears a strong will hidden behind a life makes it always a worthwhile story to tell.
