Powerful Portraits of Post-Communist Villages in Romania

In 2011, Budapest-based photojournalist Tamas Dezso began documenting the centuries-old traditions that seem to be slowly disintegrating in Romania. The series, entitled Notes for an Epilogue, takes viewers on a powerful journey through the small villages and homes, stunning landscapes, and crumbling buildings of communities that are struggling to stay alive in a post-communist world.

The series captures a rural region consumed with unemployment and diminishing resources. "Symbolic buildings and former factories are disappearing and villages are becoming deserted at an incredible speed, which urges their documentation," Dezso says. "My aim with this series is to render a world which may disappear forever imperceptibly and very rapidly due to the transitional nature of the era."

Since he began the project, Dezso has visited Romania more then 30 times in order to develop relationships with the land and the people, and to understand the local values. His fascination with the continuously changing place keeps him dedicated to the ongoing project, and he is working with writer Eszter Szablyar to develop a book that is scheduled to be published later this year.
