Photographer's Note

Monastery Caraiman from Busteni city, recently build by father Gherontie Puiu, a survivor of communist prisons.
He had a very dramatic life.
He suffered 10 years of prison because he refused to obey to communist law since 1959, when all young monks must leave their monasteries and had to work in socialist factories. With the help o Mother of God he escaped from a labour camp, he run away from "civilisated world" and he lived like a hermit in Bucegi mountains in a cave. After 1989, when communist regime fallen he was able to build this beautiful monastery in the nearby of Bucegi mountains as he promised to the God.
The monastery place has been chosen according to a revelation.
