Suddenly you have forgotten how much I love the Carpathian Mountains. This is heartbreakingly beautiful! I live an hour away from them and I can grab a backpack with a tent at any time and go for a couple of days from humanity and get a billion impressions. Less words, more pictures. I will share with you a series of black and white photographs of my beloved Carpathians.
Once again, I caught myself thinking that I was somewhat jealous of the ability of Roma to enjoy simplicity. Many people know that for almost 7 years I have been working with Roma in camps in Transcarpathia.
During photography, the most interesting thing for me is always people, or rather their life stories. When I take pictures, I talk a lot. During this time, a huge number of photographs and life stories have accumulated, funny and not very funny. For a long time, I have had an unbearable longing after talking with old people. Feeling as if they are crushed and forgotten. As if they left all hope in the past, and they lacked the strength and perseverance to realize their dreams. Few of them are really happy.
