This photograph captures the beauty and intricacies of old structures and their timelessness with a mesmerizing descent. Lost in the details, these angels seem to come alive and suspend in time from the beginning of their creation. Covered in the dust of centuries and illuminated by the passing of time, these angels whisper to the pedestrians, but only a few can hear them.
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.
