Documenting – Romania

Timisoara, Romania

This next set of documentation was set in Timisoara, Romania. Sunny, friendly and welcoming people. Anna and I came for the literature festival of which she was part of and I was happy to document the relationships developed of literary translators, writers, poets and the organisers during this festival. Meeting artists from many different countries from Europe to China. These poets all have a substantial body of work published and translated into other languages. There were exercises of street poetry/ performances in public spaces working in tandem with locals from different sport disciplines e.g boxers performed to the poems being read aloud, dancers, gymnasts, fellow actors and bikers, yes you read correctly…bikers.

When on event shoots I tend to keep to my style of photography so in the genre of street photography. One lens and one main camera and one back up for that ‘just in case one camera fails moment’ (luckily there were no fails). There are many more shots of which a number have been submitted to the organisers for promotional use. Here are just a few shots from this awesome adventure showing some of the poets, translators and organisers and feeling so grateful for having gone to this buzzing city and shooting a fantastic group of people …
