Romania is a country of contrasts. The main of these comes from the disparity between the nation's rapidly developing, modernizing cities and towns and pockets of the countryside which exist in isolation from the modern, outside world.
While Transylvania's famous city of Brasov boasts supermarkets, chic cafes and a lively night scene, a mountain village by the name of Holbav, less than 50km away lacks sealed roads, electricity and running water.
Further North, along the road to the region of Maramures, crumbling wooden houses, farmers ploughing land with horses and families riding cattle-driven carts are a common sight. The experience of making the journey through these parts of Romania can be likened to going back in time.
There are problems which the lack of development brings to the countryside - high unemployment, wide spread alcoholism and general lawlessness are all real issues. However, the situation is far from being entirely negative. The forgotten, 'frozen in time' Romanian countryside is rich in culture, traditions and spirituality. The people have close bonds with their land, animals, the nature around them and ultimately with each other.
With Romania's joining of the EU it is uncertain how long rural Romania will remain 'undeveloped'. The face of many villages is already being reshaped by the youth who come back to invest in their birth places with money earned in cities or even abroad. Fewer traditional houses, more outside influences, as well as less time for traditions and culture are indications that despite still being 'a window into the past', rural Romania is on the verge of some very big changes.

I was assigned to do a story about monsoon season in Northern Australia. Simple really, a story about place and weather…just very strange weather.
The locals have names—Mango Madness, Going Troppo, Suicide Season—for the episodes of endless wet and wind that hit any time from November through April.
Everything I read before going described weather of biblical proportions. So I adapted an entire heavy case full of underwater cameras to use on land and was fully prepared to do the John Muir thing—lash myself to something and experience the fury of the storm–but nothing turned out as I planned.
Northern Australia is an enormous place and severe weather may be happening somewhere, but getting to it is not easy. You can watch the clouds racing across the horizon, but without a plane on standby, that’s about all you can do.
For a month I did everything I could to chase monsoon weather. In the middle of cyclone warnings, we chartered the last plane allowed into the Tiwi Islands, which were directly in the path of the storm. But the cyclone suddenly took an abrupt left turn and hit land around Darwin, where we had just been.
In that first month I didn’t see anything that said “monsoon.” In fact, I was going through buckets of sunscreen, not seeing any rain…and yet the landscape all around me was filling up with water.
The writer, meanwhile, was staying put in Karumba. He had taken a gamble and planned to tell the story through the eyes of one small town. He sat there for an entire month. No rain. So he left in disgust.
I had read about people in the North praying for rain, suffering thru the never ending and ungodly heat and humidity. I just didn’t realize the folks praying for rain would be the writer and me.

The key to photography lies not in what we look at but what we see. It is this differentiation that sets apart one photographer from another. Apply this to theory and you will discover that it does not merely apply to visual perception of things in general but also a mental framework of one’s behavior and personality.

Norilsk is one of the most isolated cities on Earth with a population of more than 170 000. The city, its mines and metallurgical factories were constructed by prisoners of the Gulag. With 60% of the present population involved in the industrial process, this documentary aims to investigate human adaptation to extreme climate, ecological disaster and isolation. Norilsk is the 7th most polluted city in the world. The average temperature is -10C, reaching lows of -55C in winter, when for two months the city is plunged into polar night. The living conditions of the people of Norilsk are unique, making their plight incomparable.
Elena Chernyshova is a Russian documentary photographer, based in France. She was born in 1981 in Moscow, USSR. A self-taught photographer, she developed a passion for this visual language during her studies at an architectural academy. After two years of work as an architect, Elena quit her job and cycled with Gael de Cevoisier from Toulouse to Vladivostok and back again: 30,000 kilometres, 26 countries, 1,004 days of cultural, human, and challenging experiences. The trip led to her decision to become a photographer.
Photography for her is a way of investigating the daily life of different groups and communities in the context of environmental, political, and economic change. Her work aims at visualizing the impact of human activity, ways of adaptation, and diversity of lifestyles.
In 2011 Elena received a grant from the Lagardère Foundation to create the photo documentary ‘Days of Night – Nights of Day’ about the daily life of the industrial city of Norilsk, 400 kilometres to north of the arctic Circle in Siberia.
Elena’s work has been published in National Geographic, Le Monde, Internazionale, Days Japan, A/R magazine, Newsweek Russia, and Ecology and Life.
