Photographer's Note

Negreni - a village on the half way between Oradea and Cluj, in the West Carpathian Mountains. Where the valley of the river named Crisul Repede becames a bit larger, was place enough near/among the river to keep market.
I don't know if the tradition is continued till now, but there was once in a year a marketplace, three days long.
People - most from the surrounding villages, but also from over 100km - came with traditional products, most of them homemade. Also food, cereals, animals.

The old gipsy man was discussing, they have a very intensive body-language, expressing/underlining a lot with gestures.

Taken with a russian camera named FED II, with a "shotgun" 350mm teleobjectiv from Zenit.

Beeing so far back in the past, about a time has gone, tried a sepia version from B/W
