Davin Ellicson works between New York City and Bucharest, a beguiling little known EU capital that is in the midst of dramatic change and cultural regeneration after the fall of Nicolae Ceausescu.
His first major project is Taran based on the year he lived with farmers in the village of Valeni in the Carpathian mountains and is the subject of his first monograph due out in 2014. An ongoing series on the city of Bucharest comprises the second part of his trilogy of photographic works about Romania. In 2011, Ellicson began "Paradox Romania", a wide-ranging road trip around Romania in a vintage Dacia 1310 looking at the country's post-communist evolution. Recently, he spent time in Moldova working on the 4th part of the trilogy.
