This architectural photograph captures the beauty of a little stone soldier, placed by a window that has seen better days. It is an angelic figure, standing strong and representing hope in the face of tumultuous times and political movements. Its presence will bring a sense of comfort and protection, both to those passing by and to those within the building. This photograph is a reminder of resilience and strength.
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.
