Postcommunism in autumn colors

Postcommunism in autumn colors 
or Reshaping heritage

The fat cat leads us into the story and, if you've read Bulgakov, you know that this can get unpleasant.
The photo series is about communist architecture in Romania - it is part of the heritage. Some ignore it (buildings will fall apart by themselves if you wait long's good Romanian philosophy), some renovate it and try to give it a more human, or at least less monstrous look. Sometimes the renovated buildings get a violent, headache-provoking color. I don't know why, maybe there was just too much grey before.
