Do not be afraid

I too am afraid

Everyone in turn steps out
into his yard
eyes pierced for a moment, seeing

We are Irina and Silviu and we do everything together.

Our story begun in Transylvania while studying Philosophy at the University and we have been inseparable ever since. From translating philosophy books to changing diapers, creating collages together and documenting our reality through photography our togetherness became a lifestyle.

For the past 8 years we have called Wales home, the land of hiraeth and Celtic legends, of rugged coastlines and dramatic Brecon Beacons. 

If you feel a connection with our aesthetics and vision we would love to hear from you.
