Romania, a Celebration
A visual celebration of Romania’s cultural, rural and environmental heritage.
“Romanian a Celebration” is a project that consists of an assortment of specific topics presented through books and exhibitions which allow people to discover Romania from the unique perspective of a member of the Romania royal family.
- Document Romania’s heritage
Each region of Romania has distinctive histories and cultural sites that Princess Sophie captures in her work.
- Celebrate the country’s natural beauty
Princess Sophie began her photography career concentrating primarily on landscapes. She is putting her expertise in this area of photography to spotlight Romania’s natural beauty from the Carpathian mountains to the shores of the Black Sea and the hills of Maramures.
- Continue the artistic tradition of the Royal Family
Throughout the past 150 years of its History, The Royal Family of Romania, notably the women, has greatly contributed to the arts, not solely as patrons, but as artists themselves. Princess Sophie is continuing this Family tradition by putting her artistic talents at the service of the country and joining the community of Romanian artists who celebrate the country’s beauty, history, distinct capacities and great potential for development.
