Identical Apartments, Different Lives In Photos By A Romanian Artist

Published 6 months ago

I don’t know my neighbors at all. But Bogdan Girbovan at least knows how the apartments below his look. In his 10/1 project, he took his camera and photographed those apartments, starting with his own on the 10th floor. The old soviet apartments are all identical in planning (while western apartments apparently are a wild mishmash of walls and indoor pools), so it’s up to the people living there to give them color.

“I took a photograph of each apartment (the interior of each space) from the same angle, in order to better illustrate the mix of social classes in the block, displaying only differences in the character and design of the interior,” write Girbovan. “The rooms may be regarded as a psychological chart of those who live in them, reflecting their history and relation to present times.”
