Dunav - Dubovac, Stara Palanka, Grebenac, Bella Crkva, Novisad
Exotic names! I always wanted to learn Serbocroatian! As I always wanted to navigate down the Danube with an improvised boat and stop here and there and celebrate weddings and funerals.
Today Florina brings a few totally different images from there ... from where? I cannot asign a location to these allegoric frames!
An image can easily become intemporal! But when at the same time it breaks the spatial reference, it becomes a whole world, a universe in itself. And Florina with an ingenious gesture puts in each universe a single ruler, so powerful, that we cannot doubt their authority over the frame and beyond!
Meet your eastern alter ego, your twilight refuge, your parallel universe! (Photos: Florina Luput, text: Michail)
Nadrag is a former mining area, in Timis county, Romania. In 1845 a Viennese company has developed iron processing workshops in the village, thus populating the area with colonies of Germans, Slovaks, Hungarians, Romanians and Gypsies.
Mining was greatly expanded and Nadrag became a prosperous town …
Now everything has died, it remained only people nostalgic of the good old days long gone, people jobless, hopeless and with many mouths to feed.
I want to celebrate the international day of the girl with this series of photos depicting two girls from Nadrag, entitled to a brighter life that they hope to live one day (Florina Luput)
The series aims at introducing the viewer into the miraculous universe of the child, where everything is simple and possible and it all happens now.
Photographs are made in Seaca de Padure, Szeged-Tisza, Livezile. I have been hosted by their communities and they let me photograph their everyday life.
Many times the story and the reality overlap inside the image and we are transposed in a confusing atmosphere that makes us question boundaries and decide which side we want to be on.
Children are the simplest and purest of our kind. They teach me to enjoy life just by looking at their careless moves, at the unprejudiced way they discover anyone who crosses their path.
They are my most dear photo subjects; over time I realised that by simply observing them I learned how to go back in time and live life again as I did when I was a child. (by Florina Luput)
