Leaving for Romania

Next week I will be returning to Romania and am grateful to the US Embassy in Bucharest, Romania, and the New York Film Academy for sponsoring my trip. I will be giving an Artist Talk called "The Colors of Hay and Concrete: The Changing Aesthetics of Maramures Peasants at the Appalachians/Carpathians: Researching, Documenting, and PreservingHighland Traditions Conference. This event will be at Transylvania University, Brasov, Romania.


Color of Hay in Bucharest

The terrific Museum of the Romanian Peasant in Bucharest had an exhibition opening this month called "The Story of Hay." Several of my photographs accompanied the exhibit and will travel to Sweden in 2016. 


National Geographic Traveler Magazine

Kathleen's Interview: PhotographyDO

"We decided to sell everything, his house included, store our vehicles, and uproot. Our first 6 months we camped in a camper van we rented in Holland. We traveled in the UK and Ireland for 3 months, and went on to France, Italy, Slovenia, Austria, and Hungary. Budapest became our getaway escape from Romania, as it was more developed and is a terrific city. We were excited to begin our year in Romania, arriving in October, 1999."

Honghe Photography Week

Next week 20 of my photographs will be on exhibit in Honghe, Yunnan, China!

I will attend the photography festival and give a lecture on the peasants of Maramures. Even though much has changed on the exterior (houses and clothing), most families continue to farm as a means of survival.
