Storms Were Expected

On December 1st, Romania celebrates 100 years since the Great Union of 1918. Inspired by the occasion, in July 2018 I took a large format camera on a 2200km journey across the old border between Transylvania and the Kingdom of Romania in search of symbols, places and stories which define Romania’s past and present.

The now invisible borders and the storms, which were forecast throughout my trip but almost never occurred, provided the framework to explore notions of national identity, longing, faith, poverty and abandonment, all set against the backdrop of the Carpathian Mountains.
