21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
To Throw His Boogers in the Beans

The image "To Throw His Boogers in the Beans" is part of the ”Romanian Sayings Served Up on a Plate” series, depicting an artistic metaphor that emphasizes the knowledge of Romanian sayings and proverbs gathered from the wisdom of the people, confronted with the new reality created through manipulated truth and lies, served up daily on a plate. While we are witnessing the creation of a mind prison and the destruction of our beliefs and moral values, here, in the cradle of European civilization, we dare to cling blindly to ancestral teaching, which has maintained the continuity of the Romanian nation for thousands of years, and not through wars and invasions, but through peace, love, and faith
