Oarecari: Set 9 – October 1971

For Ioan Agapi, the year 1971 was, among others, a year of reportage and documentary photography in the villages of Deleni and Poiana, Iași County. The main reason was his future wife, who lived in a neighbouring village. During this period he made a series of memorable portraits with locals, capturing traditions, crafts and making lasting friendships with families in the villages. The children in this photo were the pupils of Maria Agapi, who was their teacher at the time.
