Handful of earth

Andrei Becheru

Handful of Earth is an ongoing visual exploration of man’s connection to his living environment and day-to-day life in mountain areas. Andrei Becheru: „Even as a child, I was fascinated with the mysterious atmosphere of mountain sceneries. In 2014 I started to volunteer for a local NGO, and my instinctive drive to explore led me back to them. I kept the pictures taken during my mountain hikes for about two years. Then the puzzle behind the project started to take shape. To me, a place can have a certain sound of its own, which is why I tried to put into pictures emotions generated by music. Handful of Earth is both the first part of this project and the title of an album combining traditional and contemporary music. Its inspiration comes from genres like ambient, electroacoustic and experimental music.”
