Augenblick, Profile : Mona Simon

"Memories" is a beautiful project done by German Mona Simon in which she explores her own cultural heritage of being Transylvanian-Saxon a minority which has lived in Romania for centuries. Her project is a personal journey focussing on people and details of Life.Here some notes from her:
Transylvania has traditionally been a multicultural place where Romanians, Saxons, Hungarians and Gypsies lived next to each other. Many Saxons have left Transylvania after the Communism collapsed, almost all of them immigrated to Germany. This project deals with exile and remembrance and shows a world in the way I saw it as a child.
