Portraits of unknow people

Petruț Călinescu

An audio-visual study describing the relationship between the architecture of Bucharest and its inhabitants from seemingly random observation points: bus stops. This is where ad-hoc groups of people form, standing together as if for a group photo, on a background of fascinating and surprising diversity. The result is a map of apparently ordinary spots in the Romanian capital city, places that don't normally draw anyone's interest. They provide a realistic depiction of the city, readable in multiple layers – sociological, architectural, urbanistic.
