The winner of the tuition-free scholarship for the documentary photography workshop with Chien-Chi Chang in Krakow is Alexandru Tomazatos from Romania. His Homeland – Danube Delta ongoing project was chosen by Mr. Chang as the most complex work among all submissions.

Alexandru’s project is dedicated to the place where he grew up – the Danube Delta in the Eastern part of Romania. Being a biologist by profession, Alexandru gradually switched his attention from the habits of reptiles and amphibians of this largely wild wetland area to the social and cultural life of its human inhabitants. For the last four years he has been investigating how this special environment shaped the existence of the local community. We will soon publish more about Homeland on our website.
