Photographer's Note

Negreni - a village on the half way between Oradea and Cluj, in the West Carpathian Mountains.
I don't know if the tradition is continued till now, but there was once in a year a marketplace.
People - most from the surrounding villages, but also from over 100km - came with traditional products, most of them homemade. Also food, cereals, animals. A place for sell/buy, but also to meet, to make new conections, in a time where this wasn't so easy as now.
On the photo they are dressed in a "coat" for sheppards, wearing what they try to sell.
Taken with a russian camera named FED II, with a "shotgun" 350mm teleobjectiv from Zenit.

Sorry for the quality, it's a negativ for over 20 years.
