I received a photo book during the holidays. It was Cristian Bassa who sent it to me. The photographer Paul Musescu from Romania is sixteen years old. He tells his story in a foreword, a kid getting into trouble and eventually living in the streets. He says "somehow I needed to find a way to move on, to leave all that behind. I picked up an old film camera and started taking photos."
Paul continues; " for the first time in a while I felt ok about myself and everything else. I started capturing moments from my life and through those moments I started to review my past, my memories, all my fears and all my actions"
All pictures by Paul Musescu.

There is no doubt that Paul is talented and photography seems to suit him very well. I have selected some pictures from the book that I find very strong in their visual language. It will be interesting to follow this young photographer. And what a good start to the new year!
