Jan 17, 2020
Last december I had the pleasure to participate in an Artist residence in Eastern Serbia. Invited by Belgrade PhotoMonth Festival and the Cervantes Institute of Belgrade, and inside the Serbian mobility program EUNIC AiR (Artist in Residence), I was located for a month in the areas of Kucevo and Majdanpek.

I dedicated this stage to start working on a new essay on nature, myths and beliefs of Vlach ethnic groups in Eastern Serbia... Looking forward to be able to share the results of this work soon!
