New Work In Progress

Ongoing work from the Saxon Villages, Transylvania, Romania. 2010-2011. Central Transylvania was home to scores of ethnic German villages from the 12th century onwards, but dictator Nicolae Ceausescu sold back around 90,000 Saxons to West Germany in the 1980s in an effort to rid Romania of the minority as well as to help pay off the country's foreign debt. The remaining Saxon population made a mass migration to Germany in 1990.
