Bogdan Girbovan is the Romanian photographer behind the project “1 0/1. ”
“1 0/1 ” is comprised of ten photo, taken in ten single area flats in an accommodation cube located in the eastern area of Bucharest, ” writes Girbovan. “It is a 10 -storey apartment block, and the apartments are placed one on top of the other. They are same, both in the detail of the exterior and interior. I have selected this building as I too live in it, on the 10 th flooring, and it is easier to approach the subjects. It is only one accommodation block, erected in 1966, of the approximately 70,000 apartment cubes facing the same problem.”
“I took a photograph of each apartment( the interior of each seat) from the same slant, in order to better instance the mixture of social classes in the cube, displaying only variations in the character and design of the interior. The areas may be regarded as a psychological plot of those who live in them, reflecting their history and relation to present times.”
