Rural Romania

Photographer Alex Robciuc traveled to remote villages in the Transylvanian Alps of Romania to capture the lives of local villagers. Their way of life is a traditional one, shunning much of modern technology and featuring local traditions and clothing that have been handed down through generations.

The men above have decked out their horses for a wedding. 

Horses transport goods instead of cars or fancy machinery.

I sometimes wish we could wear more of the outfits of the past, and strip away unnecessary technology so that we better connect with our families and friends. What do you think?
