My name is Mikhail Mordasov

My name is Mikhail Mordasov @mmordasov. I am documentary photographer from Russia.I am working with journalist Nadia Grebennikova on the personal long-term project – Crimea. Crimea is a huge peninsula between the Black sea and the sea of Azov, and a big south resort. The population of Crimea is about 2,5 millon. For more than 20 years Crimea was a part of Ukraine.In March, 2014, the peninsula turned into Russian territory due to referendum was held in Crimea. Ukrain and the world community as well didn’t recognize officially this transfer.Formally the annexation took few days, but reorganization of society will take years. There are changes to be fixed and published. We has traveled the length and breadth of Crimea to make a photostory about transformation. And now we keep moving and photographing.Today I am in Evpatoria, town in the west of Crimea. There was Republic of KaZantip not far from Evpatoria. It was huge festival of electronic and club music. About a hundred thousand young people went here to partying. KaZantip was held in Crimea last 21 years. This year festival left Crimea and moved to Georgia. Former territory of KaZantip in Popovka village, all clubs, bars, dance floors are abandoned and deserted now. This week I share my photo with you on BurnDiary. Follow me @mmordasov
