“My meetings with the people who hosted me, as well as the people I met on the street were as important as the photography process itself. For example, in the village of Certeju de Sus I always looked forward to play soccer with the kids on the sandy courtyard between the communist blocks and for the dinner with Macovei family who welcomed me each time in their home to eat together. These small things made me feel connected with the local community. I never photographed my hosts because I wanted to be there for them, first of all as a human being, not as a photographer. Often I feel that by photographing I take something from people. Getting closer to photograph as a human is one of my major concerns.”
