Romanian houses, abandoned. Deserted or too little inhabited villages. The untold history of extinguished lives. Often the mysteries hidden beneath ruins become wonderful stories as soon as they are being given voice to. There are places – time capsules – that we can enter. We can loose ourseves into them and we can live long gone lives.
Change, and with it disappearance, is in the natural order of things. The known history tells us that entire civilisations and thousands of species of plants and animals were extinguished. What would be truly even more sad would be to loose as well the memory of them.
Today more than ever we have the opportunity to document the culture, the history and the traditions of old times, just like grandchildren who treasure the faces of their granparents immortalized in pictures, behind which we can see the faces of other grandparents and other grandparents. True holograms of human existence.
