I did a portrait assignment here in Bucharest recently for The Chronicle of Higher Education back in the US. I spent some time with Zoe Petre, a professor of Ancient History at The University of Bucharest. You can read the story about how academia has changed in Eastern Europe in the past 20 years here.
In January I had the privilege of participating in a group project titled ‘This Day of Change’ organized by the magazine Courrier Japon which sent 132 photographers from around the world out to capture life on Barack Obama’s inauguration day. Both Japanese (pictured above) and English language versions of the book have been published. Check out the website devoted to the project here and my page on the site. The Japanese version can be purchased from Amazon Japan and the English version from Amazon.com. The book was recently nominated for a Lucie Award.
I did the reporting from Bucharest for this article which appears today in The New York Times.
The German magazine recently used a shot of mine from the Chinese immigrant strike in Bucharest. I am still here in Maramures until at least 27 March. The new work is going well. . . There is little time left to capture Europe’s peasanty.
