ROMANIAN FOLK ART THROUGH OUR LENS
You can find us in the most unexpected places. Looking to find old things in an attic, rather than sitting in a cafe. We prefer to take a bath in a creek, rather than swimming in a pool. In our travels, we find happiness in the simplest of things. We wonder at hay stalks, sheep, storks, and enjoy being in the nature, on a mountain, by a fir, watching birds, animals, finding places and villages still untouched by civilization.
But the greatest discovery of our travels is the Romanian peasant. Our true journey begins here. We want to let everyone know of these people’s kindness, diligence and skills. Because we all have something to learn from them. We travel to isolated Romanian villages looking for people who still keep their old traditions alive and honour the Romanian folk art: traditional weaving, wood carving, traditional embroidery, leather crafts.
