A New York Times blog twice reproduced a photograph I shot last February for Bloomberg News about the financial crisis in Bucharest, Romania to illustrate a piece about bad customer service. They make no mention of the photograph’s location and it’s interesting how readers could think it’s a photo from downtown Manhattan. See the original post here and the follow-up here after the post received more than a hundred comments.

Harrowing 1988 Time Magazine report about life in Romania

September 8, 2009

The account puts into stark relief why Romania is the way it is in 2009. Oppression was so great under Ceausescu and life became so bizarre, that no wonder Romania is a bit wild these days. The pendulum just had to swing the other way.

“Under Nicolae Ceausescu, 70, Rumanians have long been subjected to one of the world’s most repressive and eccentric regimes, a situation that is worsening as Ceausescu imposes ever greater privations on his people while indulging his wild-eyed ambitions”.
