Entry Description

Nicosia in Dark and White provides a look inside the long-time abandoned buildings adjacent to the so called “Green Line” in Nicosia, the divided capital of Cyprus. Through 40 black and white photographs that span a period of four years, Tzalavras attempted to capture in film what this neglected part of an otherwise vibrant city looks and feels like.
