I’m on my way to Perpignan via Paris!

August 30, 2008

It’s the end of the summer and that means an end to haymaking but also the time to head to the Visa pour L’Image photo festival in the southern French city of Perpignan. I will be there all of next week.

Ramona, my beautiful friend from Romania who has a great name and is a wonderful person.

Iasi by day

I was in this university city in the northeast of the country to rent a car in order to be able to drive over to Maramures through the Bukovina region–a trip through one of the most pristine areas of Europe–and I came across this street scene of a young couple. Romania can have a beautiful, sharp light at times.

Bucharest by night

August 29, 2008

I am based in this Balkan capital which has a kind of hipness I have not found anywhere else. Neoclassical architecture mixed with Communist era blocs provide a backdrop of decadent urban decay and the young people possess a rabid desire to surpass the West’s materialism. There is a raw energy to the city that has to be experienced to be believed.

I’m continuing to shoot in black and white on film in addition to the new color digital work however.
