Photographer's Note

Fountains and wells are still common in the rural areas of Romania. They are used as a source of water and thought to be an important part of the soul`s journey in the after-life. For every person who dies, his/her living relatives has to contribute to the making or repairing of one well and then add a cross in the vicinity to remember the dead. The common belief is that the dead will share from the water with the living who drink from that well.
