Tamas Dezso’s ‘Notes for an Epilogue’ Captures Romania in A Moment of Transition

Untouched- A Portrait of Romania by Tamas Dezso

Last week Time Magazine shared a fantastic collection of photographs taken by the Hungarian photographer Tamas Dezso. The series – entitled Notes For an Epilogue – presents a portrait of Romania and highlights how the former Eastern Bloc nation is now in a moment of transition, with both its spiritual tradition and its physical heritage simultaneously disintegrating.

For Dezso, the work explores how time is starting to affect the old traditions of the country: “Time is beginning to undermine centuries-old traditions preserved in tiny villages, in communities of only a few houses, as well as the bastions of the communist era’s enforced industrialisation, which became part and parcel of Romania’s recent history” he says on his site.

His work highlights the effects of the country’s change from communism to a central union and offers the smallest glimpse into a country experiencing a fascinating transitional period. You can find out more about the project on the photographer’s website or read his piece with Time here.
