Transylvania Woman Entering Church

Category: Travel Portraits

This local woman was gazing at the entrance of the church that I had just left. She paused for a good minute looking at the Cross before she entered the door. The elderly women of Transylvania had such an intense Faith, that you could see it in their eyes. Religion was something the people of Romania had to keep hidden under the previous Communist regime, and I could tell they deeply appreciate the freedom they now enjoy to openly worship.

Location: Brasov, Transylvania (Region of Romania)
