Exactly 20 years ago, the hopes of all Romanians laid in this cut circle, the symbol of the 1989 Romanian Revolution. This simple gesture had, at least symbolically, erased the past, giving us, the Romanian people, the chance to build a future of our own and fill that hole.
On the 22nd of December 2009, I wanted to pay a tribute to all of those who in ‘89 made this possible.
The photos are taken in hotspots of the Revolution in Bucharest: House of the Free Press, National Television building, Romana Square, Ministry of Internal Affairs building (the former Central Committee of the Communist Party, from which Ceausescu escaped by helicopter on the 22nd of December 1989), University Square / National Theatre Building, House of the Parliament, Victoria Square / Romanian Government building.
Many thanks to Prof. Voiculescu (the gentleman in the last photo) whom I met in front of the National Television building and who accepted to be photographed.
