Portraits from London Photographic Project by Ion Paciu – initiated by the Romanian Cultural Institute and Horniman Museum
We would like to invite you to the exhibition ‘Revisiting Romania: Portraits from London’ by our mentor Ion Paciu. It’s an Eye-catching exhibition of photographs of contemporary Romanians living and working in London. Around 130,000 Romanians are currently living in the UK. Some have been here for more than 40 years, some have just arrived. Each had different hopes and expectations, and each has had a different experience. Focussing on Romanians in London, this exhibition of portraits introduces some of the stories behind their journeys to the UK, aspects of their lives and their relationship with their homeland and culture.
The 35 photographs will be exhibited in large format at the Horniman Museum and Gardens from 4th October 2014 to March 2015. The entry is free.
