Heavy rains have recently killed 21 people in Romania and hundreds of people were evacuated from their homes. I shot these on assignment for Agence France Presse yesterday. People in this village - Sendreni - were trying to pile up sand bags to prevent the floods from expanding.

Hilal at Foundry

Back from the Foundry Workshop in Istanbul. It's been a really interesting experience, there were some great people there. I went in with two story ideas. One of them came through. My image of Turkey through mass-media was that of a very traditional state, where women are extremely conservative in appearance and behaviour. I was interested in and wanted to document the life of a non-traditional Turkish woman and was lucky to find Hilal, a 30 year-old teacher with a very active social life that to me resembles that of any Western woman of her age and condition.

The following slideshow is what my part of the final presentation in Istanbul looked like. In the following days, I'll keep posting images I shot while working on this story, which did not make it in the final edit. A great thanks to Hilal and her friends, who gave me access to their lives, and to Jared Moossy, my instructor, who guided me through the process!

Que te vaya bien

My friend Andreea - pictured in Prague, below - is about to set off alone on a journey through South America, that will take her a couple of years. Best of luck!

Vama Veche III

After three consecutively failed attempts to wake up at four in the morning, I finally got on the boat with the fishermen who supply the seafood restaurants in Vama Veche.

Dacia is a Romanian car manufacturer, founded by Ceausescu in 1966 with assistance from the French car manufacturer Renault. The French company now owns Dacia. Here are a few pictures of older models, that I shot for a story that ran in Esquire about the past and future of the Romanian car. First photo is taken on the highway, while the other two in a place that dismantles cars for the "Cash for Clunkers" program.
