Buzescu Bonanza | a photo story by Ivan Kashinsky & Karla Gachet | Panos Pictures

Buzescu Bonanza | a photo story by Ivan Kashinsky & Karla Gachet | Panos Pictures | Photojournalism & documentary photography Fotografia sociale e documentaria, fotogiornalismo | Scoop.it

Richly adorned multi-storey mansions with elaborate turrets, balconies, pillars and adornments from across the history of architecture are not the first thing that springs to mind when one thinks of Roma, or Gypsies as they are disparagingly known across Europe. Yet in Buzescu, a small town of 5,000 inhabitant 50 miles southwest of Bucharest, the Romanian capital, the main street is lined with a most unlikely row of architectural adventures in a strange catalogue of pastel colours and oddly combined materials. On the streets between these clusters of gaudy castles, fleets of Mercedes slowly move over rutted streets.


Alessandro Zaninis insight:

Palazzi riccamente ornati con torrette elaborate, balconi, colonne e ornamenti non sono la prima cosa che viene in mente quando si pensa ai Rom. Eppure a Buzescu, una piccola città di 5.000 abitanti a 80 Km. a sud-ovest di Bucarest, la capitale rumena, la strada principale è fiancheggiata da una fila di improbabili avventure architettoniche in un catalogo di colori pastello e materiali assortiti. Per le strade flotte di Mercedes si muovono lentamente su strade piene di buche.

REVELA è un concorso fotografico a tema sociale differente, dove ad essere premiato non è il fotografo, bensì il gruppo sociale fotografato.

 

REVELA is a social photo contest with an unique logic,  where to be awarded is not the photographer, but the social group photographed.

Critics of the kind of real-time verification that National Public Radio editor Andy Carvin practices on Twitter during events like the Sandy Hook shootings say the process introduces too many errors and sows confusion — but the benefits of this approach arguably outweigh the disadvantages.
