Walking in Tallinn for years I have always been amazed to see how it change so quickly. Today news areas are constructed around the old town and near the port, design building are erected and former factories turns into popular location. Three years ago I made a little series of photos to compare the Tallinn of 2012 with how it was in the 50’s. The Soviet government fell and the new economic grown helping the population to deeply transfer the city’s appearance.
