Photographer Spent 10 Years Photographing The Romanian Countryside Which Looks Like A Fairy Tale

According to Alex Robciuc: “In the past years, I have photographed the sunrise and the sunset from different corners hidden from circulated roads or modern cities, in the beautiful region called Transylvania situated in Romania.

I chose to use some techniques of photography and post-processing to emphasize the feelings and moods I personally felt in these places. In this series, I photographed fortified churches built by Transylvanian Saxons, mountain pastures, villages where transport is based on ox and cart, portraying the pastoral idyll of Transylvania.

It’s not hard to see why Transylvania’s landscape has sparked the imagination of so many writers. As English travel writer Patrick Leigh Fermor wrote in 1934: ‘Transylvania had been a familiar name as long as I could remember. It was the very essence and symbol of remote, leafy, half-mythical strangeness; and, on the spot, it seemed remoter still and more fraught with charms.’ With this quote in my mind, I made a selection of my last year work, and I hope you will feel the magic from these lands too.

The hard work of the last 10 years was rewarded with a Sony World Photography Awards 2019 – National Award and the effort to promote my native county worldwide got my the title of “Tourism Ambassador”.”
