St Brieuc Photoreporter

Moldovan twins.  "We like everything the same, we share the same dreams and love to watch Korean movies together. Five years ago we lost our older sister, we grieve for her and miss her, but now she is our guarding angel".  Karina and Michaela Dumitrashuk don't see any future in Moldova. They share the same dream of a better life in Italy. This is from my latest project in Moldova on assignment for Festival Photoreporter in cooperation with World Press Photo.     On Thursday I will be on my way to St Brieuc for the yearly P  hotoreporter Festival in St Brieuc. The Moldovan twins is one of 16 images that I will exhibit at the festival, together with 9 other great photojournalists. Each photographer will share their own individual stories from all over the world.

St Brieuc Photoreporter Festival 2015

I´m honored to be one of the photographers selected to exhibit at the St Brieuc Photoreporter Festival later this year. So far renowned photographers like Carla Kogelman (South Africa), Arianna Sanesi (Italy), Kieran Dodds (GB), Majid Saeedi (Iran) and Ruth Macdowall (NZ) are among the selected photojournalists.

I received a grant from St Brieuc in collaboration with World Press Photo to continue my photographic journey in Moldova. The project "Silent Land" will be a monumental journey of silent portraits through a forgotten corner of Europe. I will document children sleeping in the fields guarding the crops and travel along the Dnietsr river that separates Moldova from Transnistria. In addition to the frozen conflict that characterizes the area around the Dnietsr river, Dniestr is also a haven for the Moldovans, a place were you go on vacation and young people party in the summer. I will work on the project in July, and hopefully I will blog and instagram when I have access to wifi.
