建筑师摄影:前苏联格鲁吉亚温泉胜地遗迹拍摄

继日本废弃游乐园系列之后,比利时摄影师雷金纳德·范·德·维尔德现在正在记录格鲁吉亚前苏联温泉胜地的遗迹。

最初构思于20世纪20年代,这些曾经辉煌的疗养院为辛勤工作的公民提供了奢华的休息场所,提供了提供巨大健康效益的温泉浴和温泉浴场。往往颓废的华丽建筑和室内设计的整个,它似乎是一个耻辱,那么多现在躺在遗弃,摇摇欲坠。不过,正如雷金纳德所捕捉到的那样,剩下的东西也有其美丽之处。

他说:“俄罗斯军队的高级军官和中尉们对此很放松,甚至专门建造了军事疗养院,只为军事人员服务。由于大多数苏联领导人都住在莫斯科,他们只是用一条直达首都的火车线路把这些温泉胜地连接起来。在祖国俄罗斯,一切皆有可能。斯大林经常来这里洗澡,供奉这位共产主义领袖的神龛至今仍让我们回忆起那些光辉的岁月。”

但这一切都是徒劳吗?“在我的访问期间,我可以看到一点一点的事情被付诸行动。火车站正在翻修,而我原以为它们的状况会很糟。我看到许多园丁维护着郁郁葱葱的花园和景观。我注意到保安人员正密切注视着仍在活动的建筑物。在我所有的访问中,我都受到了最善良的人的热烈欢迎,他们邀请我参观以前的舞厅、休闲室、天井和私人房间。室外游泳池里有淡水,许多建筑物内部和周围的道路正在重新铺沥青。也许,只是也许,乌托邦的梦想并没有消失。”
