In Transition is a photographic exploration of my own transition in
life. For the last three years, I have been displaced from my home
country, Romania. I have been away from my family and friends,
constantly experiencing new territories and meeting and photographing
new people. The feeling of being displaced is hard to conquer, but I
learned that I can do that through friends. The family I built while I
was away from home is as important as my family from home.
It's a feeling of freedom attached to my own exploration, but also a feeling of getting lost in other people's life stories as I move from one place to another, this time experiencing Norfolk, Virginia, I pick up a new tool, a medium format film camera, and try to articulate the how it feels to be in a new place, displaced again, this time from the family I built in Missouri.
On my journey, I meet people that are in the same position in life as I am. They are on their way towards something. It can be finding a shelter, walking to destination point, taking a break from their daily routine, or a moment to think about the place where they are heading to, the people they become. Strangers become less stranger the minute I take their photograph.
