Image Description: This photo is from a series of photographs dedicated to the isolated Czech communities in Romania's Banat region. The lifestyle of these communities, isolated from both Romanian culture and the rest of the world, is no different than what settlers lived 200 years ago. "This photo was taken in a local restaurant in the village of Eibenthal. I saw an elderly couple and a young boy holding their grandmother's dress tenderly. I pressed the button and froze the precise moment when their hands revealed the relationships between them."
