Oil & Paradise

Between 2008 and 2013, photographer Ad Nuis travelled to Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan no fewer than ten times. Each of these visits would last about 25 days. With Oil & Paradise Nuis portrays the absurd contradictions between the lives of the nouveaux riches in Baku and the ordinary citizens of Azerbaijan.
