This beautiful photograph captures the old bucharest architecture, showing its elegant past while reflecting its falling and decay. It also captures the struggle of the city to stand and keep its dignity. The women symbolize the weight they are carrying for this place. "Witnesses" is part of the Decay series, taking you to the heart of Romania's 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.
