This romantic portrait of Princess Brianna Cardja captures her looking ever so thoughtfully beyond the decayed old Bucharest. Her gaze conveys a sense of hope and longing for the rejuvenation of this elegant and magnificent city, once called Little Paris. Her beauty and grace embody the city's spirit and potential, and make this portrait an inspiring reminder of the city's potential to rise again.


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.
