The Child with Smena Symbol

The actual story of that particular child started long before Smena Symbol entered the scene.

Sometime in between the wars, a young peasant couple bought a parcel somewhere in the heart of profound Transylvania and built their home around an apple tree. It was a vibrant, beautiful village that abundantly covered the hills up to a dense forest grown to cast shadows on the city several miles away.

One century later, the tree still stands, while the village around vanished and the home decays. What the camera witnessed through the sight of the child is just a recent, tiny part of this place’ story, but it’s here to last by being shared with the world.
