Description
When Albania, like the rest of communist Eastern Europe, weathered the end of the Cold War and the dissolution of the Soviet Union, hopes for prosperity and freedom took root. Swiss photographer Hans Peter Jost's images of that time depict a cloistered society in the throes of change, at a time when there were no private automobiles on the streets, when Coca-Cola advertising and ATMs were not yet part of the landscape, and houses were not yet adorned with satellite dishes. Here those images of the "old" Albania are juxtaposed with photos taken two decades later, underscoring a vivid discrepancy between the dreams of 1991 and the realities of today.
