I Captured The Beauty Of Autenthic Transylvanian Traditions

Over the year, in many parts of Romania, people celebrates in traditional way different aspects of life such as : the main religios holydays and the changing of seasons with festivals that have remained unchanged for centuries. Folkways are very well preserved here. Young street-performers and celebrants are wearing the same costumes and they are dancing the same steps to songs played on instruments as they ancestors did.At one festival like that I captured portraits of young villagers parading in their traditional costumes, groups of boys dancing while wearing large cow-bells, meant to drive away evil spirits and chanting tunes that welcome the new year.This serie of photographs was captured in Maramures county, Romania in December 2017. Here in Maramures, centuries-old traditions are strongly rooted in the local culture.

Wish you all A Happy New Year!
