Poems and photographs – Alexandra Vacaroiu

Book of poems and photographs in Romanian by Alexandra Vacaroiu.

Libraria Open Art, editura Charmides.

The book is called “Presence or Absence” and it is about the presence of poetry in the absence of love.

“I wrote the poems and took the images over the course of 5 years. I started with writing the poem and then taking an image that would either enhance or change the meaning of the text. Each two pages correspond to a story of the cities I was living in or visiting, of the struggle to fit in and to live without loving or being loved. It was really important for me to publish this book as a way of letting go of this phase. It was my way of saying goodbye to certain people and stories.”
