Lost and found: the photo project reuniting Moldovan villagers with their younger selves (The Calvert Journal)

The Calvert Journal: Lost and found: the photo project reuniting Moldovan villagers with their younger selves. “In 2016, film school student Victor Galușca found the negatives for thousands of photographs in an abandoned home in the northern Moldovan village of Roșietici….The incredible archive was made into a photo book, showcased at exhibitions in Chișinău and Bucharest, and is now available to view online. But the publicity also meant that people who recognised themselves in [Zaharia] Cușnir’s photographs got in touch with Galușca. The young photographer decided to embark on a new project: taking pictures of Cușnir’s former subjects with the black-and-white portraits of their younger selves.”
