Since 1974 there a big part of Cyprus became abandoned after creating a cease-fire line between Cyprus and the unrecognized Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

36 years of decay. Abandoned houses, hotels, shops and even cardealer.
That means: several 'new' cars with only 37 driven miles,
vintage advertising in the streets and much much more!

These photographs were made by my brother Bo de Visser, he was one of the few photographers who was able to explore this place.

I presume, as they seem to be talking to each other again (and allowing cross border trips for tourists), that the days of dereliction may soon be coming to an end. Though I think it would make a super tourist attraction for the island!!!!!!!!

Very good, it has to be on my list of international top ten explores to do. It doesnt even look as pillaged as I though it might.
