Documented between 2009 and 2012, Broken Dreams is a haunting photographic essay on the city of Nicosia and conflict areas in the north of Cyprus that was exhibited during Pafos 2017. The exhibition is part of A Tale of Two Cities – a cross-cultural photography exhibition by artist and photographer David Pisani, whose work explores architectural poetry as a metaphor for the human condition.

Pisani’s work has been exhibited at the prestigious Biennale of Photography in Paris in 1996 and was entered in the Permanent collections of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France in June 2000.
