Broken Homeland is a tribute to Théophile, my grandfather.  He left Romania as he was 20 years old and settled down in Auvergne in the center of France.

I never met him, but I decided to flash his story back.

I went to Romania and walked the line until the center of France.

These pictures are intentionally black and white with no traces of modernity so that I could imagine the film of the journey he made a 100 years ago. I sometimes could feel his presence next to me, walking on the same road, crossing the same forests and fields, listening to the everlasting silence.

Broken Homeland is both a true story and an imaginary trip across continental Europe.
