Years ago when I discovered the work of Nikos Economopoulos I was touched by his "In the Balkans" book which sparked my interest to see the places that he photographed.
Inspired by the story of Edi Rama - the artist mayor who decided to paint the grey buildings all over Tirana to cheer up the people and help them forget their grim past, I decided to explore Albania and photograph it in color.
I feel like home in Albania due to cultural similarities with my own country and it triggers me memories of Romania right after the fall of comunism.
