Fortunatamente ci sono i fotografi che non vanno a cercare per il mondo i reportage, ma li fanno intorno a casa, documentando in maniera eccellente la “normalità”, senza cercare il sensazionalismo a tutti i costi.

In questi giorni mi è arrivato a casa l’ultimo numero di Gente di Fotografia, e tra i bellissimi reportage ci trovo quello del fotografo Rumeno Petrut Calinescu.
Forse per la mia passione per l’est europa, i balcani ed il Mar Nero, questo lavoro mi ha subito colpito.

Il progetto da cui sono estratte queste foto si intitola Black Sea ed è raccontato in un blog.
Oltre a Petrut Calinescu il progetto è portato avanti anche dallo scrittore Stefan Candea e prevede di documentare tutto il mar nero, non solo la costa rumena, toccando anche  Bulgaria, Turchia, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Russia, Ukraina e Moldova.

Sul sito del fotografo e soprattutto nel blog del progetto trovate tutte le immagini e tutte le informazioni. Seguitelo e chissà che non ci possa essere il modo anche di coinvolgerlo in uno dei nostri workshop.

Today it became a cheap destination for Russian tourists, as is estimated that almost half of a million Russian are coming in yearly.
