    Abandoned buildings in Aleppo


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     The shattered insides of people's homes in Aleppo, Syria, are on poignant display in these evocative images by Italian photographer RovellaM. Taken in June 2013, the images show a city smashed to pieces by the country's brutal civil war. "I wanted to look at the life conditions and to document the situations," he said. "It's something like still life photography, but you can see inside the homes tensions and fear, the moments of violence, how you were obligated to leave your things, your home, your life and go away, maybe to not come back."

    Syrian war continues but in spite of everything still many people live in cities in Syria. But lots of buildings are abandoned. People escaped from their flats to avoid bombing from the Syrian regime. Someone escaped just in time but many others didn't survive. Here the images of some flats in Aleppo and the house of the FSA brigade commander Major Abu Maher which living room was literally sliced in half. Abandoned places where time seems to have stopped.
