LOST BOYS is an on-going project for which I document the lives of a group of 3 to 8 boys that live on the streets of Bucharest.
These kids are the leftovers from a recovering country that was ruled by Nicolae Ceaucescu until 1989, when he and his wife were sentenced to death, and communism fell for good. These boys are referred to as the 3rd generation that remains living on the streets and in the tunnels. They form their own communities and bond new families. Although life is tough, for most of these kids, it seems to be all they want:
