Jason Oddy fotografa il silenzio degli edifici politici abbandonati | Collater.al

Jason Oddy is a British photographer and writer with a special interest: photographing empty spaces that were once places of power. These photographs are made in places not open to the public full of political, historical and ideological meanings. For inaccessible places, we mean, for example, the interior of Pentagon, Guantanamo Bay military prison in Cuba and a Ukrainian sanatorium, a health institution dedicated to well-being during the Soviet era.

Jason was also granted the opportunity to enter Neue Prora, former Nazi holiday resort in West Berlin and access more modern facilities, such as the United Nations building and Palais des Nations in Geneva.

According to a type of policy these photographs show the personality of each structure, because the way in which a country is governed influences culture, art and consequently also architecture.
