DECAY

I love cities.  They highlight what is important to a people, their values and culture. Cathedrals in Europe show the importance of the Church, while in NYC, banks dwarf other buildings on the skyline; in Moscow the architecture reveals power and honors history. Romania's capital city, Bucharest, displays an elegant past that, after 40 years of communism and corruption, is now reaching levels of decay that may defy renovation.  Over the past ten years, I have tried to create a parallel between the image of Princess Brianna Caradja, whose aristocratic family was driven out of Romania by politics, and of the capital city that is crumbling both physically and socially.  With my journalistic background, I attempt to mirror the forgotten, ignored grandeur of both the physical and social institutions of my homeland.

"Decay" is a collection of 18 photographs.
