This series is a collection of the election posters of the unrecognized countries of Transnistria, Nagorno Karabakh, Kosovo, and Turkish Republic of North Cyprus. While traveling through these states I noticed in every town or city there were thousands of defaced election posters, not a single political flyer untouched, it was a common thread despite these countries being vastly different culturally and politically.  I decided to document the creative ways in which people were defacing their local candidates political posters and ephemera left over after recent elections.   These images are more to do with my feelings towards Irish Politics and politicians rather than a statement on the geo political situation in these unrecognized states.
