Several photos of people living in Romania’s villages have gone on display for the first time at the Holy Trinity Romanian Orthodox Parish in Troy, Michigan.
The Basilica.ro exhibition was opened on Sunday, June 16, 2019 with the help of the Romanian Orthodox Metropolis of the Americas on the patronal feast of the Troy parish.
Titled ‘The Portrait of the Romanian Village’, the exhibition was presented during an artistic show performed by the children from the Sunday School.
Together with the portraits of Romanian peasants, other folk art objects were displayed to remind Romanians of their roots.
The Portrait of the Romanian Village
In the context of the Solemn Year of the Romanian Village in the Romanian Patriarchate, the Basilica News Agency opened its first photography exhibition under the name of ‘The Portrait of the Romanian Village’ during a ceremony held at the Palace of the Patriarchate on February 27, 2019 in the presence of His Beatitude Patriarch Daniel.
The exhibition included fifty pictures, some of which haven’t been printed or exhibited before, which were taken by the Basilica.ro photographers Raluca Ene and Mircea Florescu, as well as by other Romanian photographers who spent weeks, months and even years photographing the iconic parts of Romania’s villages.
