Childhood Memories. This series of photos is part of my project “Childhood Memories”. “Childhood Memories” is an ongoing project that talks about the remaining regions of Romania that are still well preserved in terms of tradition, untouched by technology and all that it is supposed to be a modern civilization that big cities embrace.
It talks about mine and most of the Romanians childhood, about those who visited their grandparents for holidays and grew up there playing careless and free in pure places without feeling the pressure of the society that they were going to leave in. This is a collective memory of our childhood, without any veil, without any mask, just pure and simple.
The memories speak through a visual language that takes shape with the help of images, revealing or making you wonder more about what is happening in the frame, creating strong emotions about places in Romania forgotten of time and modern civilization.

BIO | My name is Iris Maria Tusa and I am an independent photographer based in Bucharest, Romania. My love for the visual arts accompanied me through time. I discovered and felt in love with photography 6 years ago. Since then I participated in photography exhibitions, attended and was invited to workshops and I also have published a photography book. For me photography is an ongoing process of learning more about myself and my surroundings.
