Work: Quo Vadis, 2013, Digital print
Grosii Tiblesului, Maramures, Romania
Family lunch in the village of Grosii Tiblesului. Last photograph I have taken of my aunt Roza. She enjoyed visitors, but at that time she already felt too weak to deal with guests. A few months later she passed away. She was never really fond of posing - especially at that time - but I really wanted to capture her expression.
Veni, vidi, amavi. 2013, Digital print
Every year our high school organises a Fresher's Ball. The photograph is taken during some rehearsals for the show, at a time when some team-building games have been played. I had to photograph the students for the whole week so after a while they did not mind if I took photos of them and they acted very relaxed in front of the camera.
