Another Mircea

* Eurozine is a good source on European culture. A current issue has a feature on a Romanian photographer, Mircea Stanescu. Here's a link to the page and a few photos.

The feature:
Hans Rainer Sepp
In the heart of Romania

Mircea Stanescu's photo series "Airbag"

The photographs of Mircea Stanescu featured in the Eurozine gallery were taken in the artist's hometown of Sibiu, Romania. In an accompanying essay, phenomenologist Hans Rainer Sepp describes how the images occlude and allude in equal measure: the signs, symbols, and graffiti speak volumes about this society, but are ultimately unintelligible.
