Tethered to the Past
It is incredible seeing how these old abandoned buildings are preserved and never renovated. The Rize Province of Northeast Turkey gives the feeling that it’s sacred, and has an ancient heritage.
Each family with their ancient and modern buildings laid up side-by-side with each other. Any tourist would ask, “Why do they preserve such old houses when they can use the land for a better, more modern structure?”
Maybe they leave their old homes to cherish or keep up with their culture. Regardless of their reason, it is a good reference point for today’s architecture and reminds the younger generations of their family grassroots.
I could see the abandoned buildings all painted in turquoise and pink, the wooden doors still fitted to their hinges, and with some of their remaining belongings littered on the floor left to decay. Are those buildings preserved? Yes, invariably, they are abandoned and left for nature to reclaim.

We recommend taking your time to select the perfect print for your space – or feel free to ask us for advice if you would like a second opinion! Similarly, please ensure you measure up carefully. A great trick is to cut a sheet of paper to the exact size of print that you’re considering and blue-tack it to the wall. This will give you a really good sense of how the print will look in your space.
