The Resident

27 images Created 26 Mar 2016

Sfistofca is a village isolated by waters in the eastern part of the Danube Delta, one of Romania’s most remote areas. Earlier it was home to around 900 inhabitants who worked as farmers, fishermen or in the fish processing industry. A communal downswing lasted over decades and residents abandoned their houses with hope to begin a better life elsewhere.

Vasile remained. He lives alone among a total population of 53, affected by a constantly proceeding migration, poor infrastructure and unemployment. He suffers with alcohol abuse and the future of the community is dull. His only wish to revitalize the village to find a new meaning in life, is still unfulfilled to this day.
