I've lived in Bucharest for the past three years but I was born and raised in the Transylvanian town of Orăștie. I visit my hometown a few times a year, and every time I go back I can't shake the feeling that Orăștie has been gradually turning into a ghost town. Most streets are empty—you might see a lonesome silhouette down the street when walking around, but nothing more.
So this year, I decided to document the images that create this feeling of displacement in a series I called Hometown. I guess I'm trying to freeze some of my memories of Orăștie because I am afraid for what could be lost next time I visit.
