So, if I would have to answer using the fancy word of “project”, my whole photographer life is a big project with the following title: Transylvania and Maramures”  – Kisalföld daily newspaper 2020 –

FRONTART – 2019

We are proud to announce that Atlas of Humanity is now exhibited in New York! This photographic journey around the beauty of the humankind came to life in 2015, inspired by the UNESCO Declaration on Cultural Diversity to help preserve and promote cultural diversity worldwide. Now, thanks to the work of some of the most interesting photographers in the world, Atlas of Humanity was exhibited first at Photokina 2018 in Cologne and, after New York, the project will be held in China, Dubai, Tunis, Milan and Paris. Special thanks to InnovaArt and Fondazione Alex Dolce.
