This photograph of "Sorrow" captures the essence of the old town Bucharest. It depicts a weathered stone made woman with an expression of sorrow in her eyes, a reflection of the decay that has taken over the town. She stands tall and proud, radiating a strength and resilience in the face of adversity that is both inspirational and moving. This piece is a powerful reminder of the beauty of Bucharest and an acknowledgement of the perseverance of its people.
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.
