Dragos-Radu Dumitrescu – Of the capital
“Of the Capital” is a project that stemmed out of will – or rather personal need – to delicately capture the spaces and people along whom I’ve walked without ever glimpsing into their world.
In an environment where everything is being normalized to an acutely even manner, I kept looking fervently for that last intimacy, that splendid isolation and inlaying of the ones without borders, fences and walls. I tried to capture a world of nuance, stripped bare of the informative, trivial and ordinary that usually comes from photojournalism these days. A world told with the fondness and profundity of its disclosure. – Dragos-Radu Dumitrescu
Dragos wanders around in various places and scenery of Bucharest as he is trying to capture intimate portraits of the people he encounters. Sometimes he finds them in remote dangerous locations and sometimes close to home or in very familiar places. The lack of documentary value makes these photos stand out and stand alone.
Dragos attended various photography classes, won various awards and now is a freelance photographer. You can find more of his works on his website: http://cargocollective.com/dragosdumitrescu
