Ruin Lust






The London art gallery, Tate Britain, is having an exhibition about how artists love painting, drawing, sculpting, photographing ruins. 

When I saw the poster I immediately starting thinking about Mogadishu. The way ruined concrete, bricks and stones start to decay, almost as if they are rotting. 

As you can see from my photos below, artists would have their RUIN LUST sated in Mogadishu.
