The Brief
The EIDOS Foundation, Bucharest, has given carte blanche to five Magnum photographers – Thomas Dworzak, Paolo Pellegrin, Alec Soth, Bieke Depoorter and Newsha Tavakolian – to deliver their visions of contemporary Romania. The project, Romanias, is on display at the National Museum of Art of Romania. The accompanying book of the same name features the five Magnum photographers’ essays as well as one by Cristian Movila, a Romanian photographer and founder of EIDOS Foundation.

Exhibition

How should Romania be represented today, 30 years after the revolution? What realities, and also what perspectives can this region hold? And which photographers can best address these questions?
