Resumo:

Northern Transylvania is the last bastion of subsistence peasant villages in Europe. It is an area so remote that the Romans never conquered them. Yet just two decades after the fall of communism, modernity is finally overcoming their centuries old traditions. In a single generation, the villages shown here have gone from illiterate poverty to cell phone towers. Kathleen's photographs capture both the traditions and the change of the first decade of the 21st century. Using a medium format camera with traditional film negatives, she pursues the mission of a documentary photographer by preserving a piece of fading history. Over 130 photos are displayed throughout 200 pages. Each image carries a caption, a location and a date. The book is organized into chapters on the seasons, the ceremonies, and the meaning of life. Throughout, there are essays, poems, proverbs, ghost stories and songs to add depth to the lives of these special villages.

Romania is a stunningly beautiful country, with a large rural population notable for both warmth and humor. If you aren't able to visit Romania yourself, this book is the next best thing. The photography is gorgeous, and truly captures the culture and a traditional way of life that, though changing,...

Fantastic Book on Maramures, Romania

por BillOwen (Usuário WorldCat publicado 2011-12-04) Excelente Permalink

The photographs in the Color of Hay are truly inspirational. They capture the essence of the old world colliding with the new that only could happen in Maramures. This is a fantastic book that brings this wonderful, mysterious place to life.
