“Dancing with Costica” by Photographer Jane Long – Design You Trust

“Dancing with Costica” by Photographer Jane Long

The “Dancing With Costica” series began when photographer Jane Long decided to brush up on her retouching skills. After finding the Costica Acsinte Archive on Flickr, she became fascinated with the images and their subjects, wanting to bring them to life and give them a story. Costica Acsinte was a Romanian war photographer who, after discharge, opened a studio in Slobozia, Romania. Around 5,000 of his glass plates were purchased by the Ialomita County Museum and in 2013, Cezar Popescu started to digitize them. (Photo by Costica Acsinte Archive/Jane Long)
