Văleni is placed in a magical land

In 2015 I was invited by Michael Baron de Styrcea to work at his family estate at Văleni, in Romania, to help document the grounds and landscape, as well as the traditional methods of agriculture in the region. I arrived in Văleni for my first visit in May 2015 to work at the purpose built studio set in the grounds, among rolling hills, meadows and forests. The clear atmosphere of this rural area produced intense light and colours, a truly magical landscape. On the estate I worked mainly in the arboretum, where I discovered some magnificent trees, survivors from past centuries.
