“I like to think my pictures are an ambassador to the city we live in.
I wish to make Bucharest known. It’s beautiful, but the world does not see it like that. Because we are caught in the heap of everyday activities and we do not worry about what is beautiful and we do not let the beauty around us reach us. With love we do wonderful things! “
