Versus gathers VIPs in vintage photo shoot

Almost 50 public figures of Romanian cultural life accepted to take part in a joint project of master-photographer Eugen Ciocan and Andreea Berecleanu, meant to enhance awareness of the importance of Bucharest’s Historical Centre, which has been degrading, by the minute, for 20 years now. In melancholy, sepia or hand-painted, photographs you will recognise a series of personalities who no longer contented themselves to sit and watch, thinking someone should take initiative.

The “Versus – Stars on the Ruins of the Historical centre” represents such an initiative. “If I had to contract our message in a manifesto-phrase, I’d say: ‘We’re alive, here and now. We want to live a normal, even a beautiful, life! We’d ask you, hence, to change this embarrassing, inadequate setting’”, Eugen Ciocan, art photographer and the spiritual father of the Fotocabinet concept, said.

Actually, the third Fotocabinet recently opened on Lipscani street, hosting the aforementioned exhibition. The 50 photographs show some of the personalities in Romanian culture, who allowed the artist to take their pictures, among piles of garbage and rubble, for a noble cause: saving the capital’s historical centre.
