I am a Romanian photojournalist based in Bucharest, Romania. I received a BA in journalism from the University of Bucharest and then went on to study photojournalism at the University of Missouri, on a Fulbright scholarship.
Some of my photos have been awarded by Pictures of the Year International, College Photographer of the Year and The Missouri Press Association.
I was lucky enough to have been a participant in several workshops, among which the Missouri Photo Workshop, the Mountain Workshop, the Foundry Workshop and the World Press Photo Masterclass for Southeastern Europe.

The Religion Card
Religion has always played a crucial role in defining national identity in Serbia. Banned for so long, the Orthodox Church has recently seen a vigorous revival.
After more than a decade since the war in the Balkans had ended, religion has reached an almost institutional dimension that permeates a wide spectrum of Serbian society.
