Faces from an isolated Romanian town around the WW2

Faces from an isolated Romanian town around the WW2







This is a collection of photos that were realized by Costică Axinte, a studio photograph that activated in Slobozia from 1930s to 1950s. More details about his life in the English Wikipedia page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costic%C4%83_Acsinte



He was not known until recently, when his huge collection of thousands photographic plaques started to be scanned by Cezar Popescu, a photography enthusiast, who received help from the Slobozia County Museum and other organisms for the creation of a digital archive. Published on Facebook and other sites, these license free photos have quickly became popular, being presented in newspaper articles etc.



What is special with these photos is that reveals an unexpectedly complex society and variety of strong characters in one of the most isolated and least developed urban communities in Romania. Slobozia (population 52,710 in 2002, 7,591 in 1930) is a city in the middle of Bărăgan Steppe, which is the eastern part of the Romanian Plain, the plain in the southern Romania, between Carpathians and Danube. Bărăgan, with its harsh climate (hot and dry summers and cold windy winters) is the most unhospitable region in Romania, used also for the deportation of political enemies by the communist regime.






For more info about these photos and the project of digitalizing them, here is the official site:

and here is the Flickr account from where I'm gonna take the photos to use on this thread:
