P&B. Bucharest, Romania, 2018.
A rainy night in Bucharest – Bucharest, Romania, 2018. Get a print!

I love shooting the streets of Bucharest. I don’t know why, there is something that always inspires me. Some vide, I don’t know. But every single time I go there, I come back with at least one great photo.

This particular photo as been taken during a rainy night at my favourite spot in the Romanian capital, the Union Square (or Piata Unirii for the locals). It’s always full of lights, with an interesting design, and a good looking metro station entrance. A few shots from my portfolio have been done there… This shop’s showcase is a great example of what can be found there. With this yellow/orange lighting, the rain allowing a great reflection on the ground, it was just about waiting for the perfect subject to pass 🙂

Ghost

The Ghost project started during an urbex session in April 2017. I found this abandoned heavy machinery plant from the communist era that was just waiting for me to be the main character of a new project! I’ve always wanted to make a project with a dark, disturbing ambiance, and the plant made the perfect context. The idea came to bring life back in this dead place, but life from another place…

It has been quite an adventure for me. It took a dozen trips, a few battles with stray dogs, a definite increase of my ninja skills, 1 dead memory card with a full day of shooting, 5 models (including yours truly), almost a thousand photos, a complete overhaul at mid project and a bunch of “I’ll never finish that damn project”.

But in the end, I did it, here the final form of the Ghost project.

All these photos are available as original, signed fine art prints in limited edition.
