I moved to Bucharest 7 years ago. I only know 0,003 % of the people living here, but I’m happy.
I moved to Bucharest because this was the only place I could study film directing. I stayed here because all major film work is done here. In the meantime I started enjoying taking pictures and having fun photographing people on the street.
This city has a lot of new buildings and a lot of old fashion neighborhoods which remind me of communist era. There is also the old part of town, the one American aviation didn’t bomb in 1945 and a lot of buildings survived Ceausescu’s plans of modernizing the city, too. A city of contrasts. With beautiful/shitty architecture, with skyscrapers and ruins on the same street.
The pictures are from this 7 years period I’ve been living here. It’s easy to tell which is older/newer, right? Maybe this preview will get you curious to see more, maybe plan a trip here, too. If you visit town in 10 years you might just not see it anymore. I don’t really find the use of a picture that has nothing human in it. A picture with great landscape is as useless as a jar of honey when you shipwreck in the Atlantic. That’s why I consider Bucharest a town of faces. I enjoy people have their own problems and are usually careless of cameras.
Have you ever imagined what it feels like to shoot with a 100-year-old camera? In the past four months, I have been shooting hundreds of photos with a Contessa Nettel Tessco. I don't know when was the last time its previous owner shot pictures with it. Perhaps 20 to 30 years ago?

100-year-old Apo Whang Od is most likely the oldest tattoo artist in the world. A living legend in the Philippines, she has mastered the indigenous inking art of the batok and is a fascinating testament to the culture of the butbut people in Northern Luzon.
Wherever I go I am drawn to cemeteries, as the culture of death always tells a lot about the people, who live it. In the Philippines I stumbled about a variation of outstanding customs and rituals that left me partly in awe. This is a tale of life and death in the Philippines.
Spirit photography was a genre of the 19th century, where a photograph of a living subject features a 'spirit' of a deceased person. Of course, we all know it's a double exposure, but before then, William Mumler took advantage of his clients to sell 'spirit photographs'.

First of all, I really appreciate being able to join the TEN AND ONE Residency Week in Vienna along with super cool Lomographers! We could never have any forgettable memories. The members are 11 people from 10 countries. I thought it'd be difficult to communicate with each other because of our different cultures, languages, personalities, etc. But we didn't have any worries. We respected each other, above all we are Lomographers!
