Los monumentos arquitectónicos tradicionales iraníes a menudo se construyen cerca del suelo debido a la falta de tecnología de viga y columna. Los palacios, mezquitas y edificios públicos se construyen con solo uno o dos pisos, y la arquitectura iraní rara vez presenta torres o edificios de gran altura como resultado.

Jonk's Photographs Depict the Abandonment and Beauty of Yugoslavian Monuments

French photographer Jonk drove over 5,000 kilometers through southeast Europe. His subject matter? Yugoslavian monuments, or “spomenik” in Serbian.

Built in the 1960s and 70s under former president Josep Broz Tito, these monuments commemorate the communist resistance during the German occupation. While their sculptors and architects vary (Vojin Bakic and Jordan and Iskra Grabul among others), all of the monuments memorialize WWII battle sites or former concentration camps. Although the monuments attracted a high rate of visitors in the 1980s, many of them have been abandoned or poorly preserved after Yugoslavia’s split. Jonk’s photographs illuminate both the decay and beauty of these sculptures.
