Documenting Baku

For Humanity by Tahir Salahov

This is a page about decomenting Baku’s decaying urban life and architecture of the past. The past that we are nostalgic and sentimental about, but we believe that it is worthy of protecting as a heritage.

Unfortunately, the material and financial drives of capitalism is much more stronger power. It is capable of erasing any traces of past to build in accoring to necessicites of the day. In a sense it is the history repeating itself. Our past generation, who we value very much, did the same at the time. That is the sheer reality of any time.

What we aim at is to reject that reality and adopt a sense of cultural conscience, engage in value creation. We will commit ourselves a series of decomentary photograhy about Baku’s urban environment.
