An intimate notebook of documentary work undertaken in Romania, exploring the country's landscape and integral connections Romanians have with nature. Martínez and Sáez travelled more than 6000km photographing mostly in rural areas, meeting with local people along the way. Their exploration encompasses winter through summer seasons, with the guiding theme that since the first inhabitants of Europe populated fertile Romanian lands, the spirit of Romanian society has been instinctively linked to the land.

The Author

Pascual Martínez and Vincent Sáez are two Spanish photographers working together as Niñorojo Project. Their focus is on human relations and the study of society through photography as a means of anthropological exploration. In 2014 they began an artistic residency in Bucharest, Romania, working on The Tree of Life is Eternally Green (previously entitled Nature/Citizens), and have exhibited in solo shows in Spain, and in Bucharest and Brasov (Romania). In part the making of this project was supported by grants for foreign cultural journalists awarded by the Romanian Cultural Institute. The Tree of Life is Eternally Green publication was recognised with the 2018 ArtsLibris-Fundació Banc Sabadell Prize, by jury selection at the Arts Libris book fair in Barcelona, and Martínez + Sáez won the Photography Prize of the University of Murcia (2018). Previously this work was selected to exhibit at PHotoEspaña Forum of the Community of Madrid and at PA-TA-TA Festival in Granada (2017), and in the final selection at Barcelona International Photography Awards (2015). Pascual and Vincent studied at the School of Art in Murcia, and combine their work as photographers with teaching, designing and curating photography exhibitions.
