Transylvania Hay Country by Rena Effendi

renaeffendi01The whole Borca family, from Breb, puts finishing touches on one of the 40 haystacks it makes each summer.

renaeffendi02More sheep used to graze in the highest mountain pastures, but an increasing number of flocks now occupy fields near the villages. Some shepherds say that sheep in the lowland meadows are less beautiful, perhaps because there’s less rain than in the surrounding highlands to wash them off.

renaeffendi03Corn is shelled, then fed to the cattle. Ion Petric and his wife, Maria Vraja, who live in Breb, help out their neighbors’ daughter, seven-year-old Adriana Țânțaş. Transylvanian family life and village life remain intimately bound up with the needs and services of farm animals.

renaeffendi04Cousins Anuța and Magdalena Mesaroș, 17, are on their way to a wedding in Sat Șugatăg, Maramureș.

renaeffendi05Every member of a Transylvanian family plays a part in the farming life. Eight-year-old Anuța, from Bogdan Vodă in the north, helps with the cows and sheep.

renaeffendi06Mothers and grandmothers like Maria Pop, from Cornești, spinning raw wool at home, devote hundreds of hours a year to making traditional embroidered clothes for their families.

Oskar Barnack and the prototype Leica

From 1914, Oskar Barnack (1879–1936), the inventor of the Leica, used the prototype camera he developed, today known as the Ur-Leica, for photography. He captured various events in entire series of photographs and became one of the earliest photographers to document the relationships between man and the environment.

For instance, his photography of the floods in Wetzlar in 1920 is now considered to be the first reportage series shot with a 35 mm still film camera.
