Ziua Dobrogei - 14 noiembrie 2018
14 noiembrie 1878 - 14 noiembrie 2018
 Expozitia este dedicata sarbatoririi a 140 de ani de la revenirea Dobrogei la teritoriul national

Lucia Simion: 'Proiectul 'Dobrogea - Dincolo de fotografie' este inspirat de oamenii pe care eu i-am intalnit in cateva excursii fotografie facute in perioada 2013 - 2017 in satele din centrul si sudul Dobrogei, localnici care m-au impresionat prin amabilitatea lor, prin faptul ca au acceptat cu zambetul pe buze, prietenosi, relaxati, sa fie subiectul unei fotografii.
Deschiderea catre dialog a dansilor m-a inspirat sa realizez aceasta expozitie care indruma atentia privitorului dincolo de fotografia in sine, dincolo de chipul care apare in imagine, catre omul care iti zambeste desi inca nu te cunoaste personal.
Proiectul a fost dezvoltat in anul 2018 prin colaborarea cu Uniunea Elena din Romania, Comunitatea Rusilor Lipoveni din Romania si Uniunea Democrata Turca din Romania.
Expozitia vorbeste despre existenta relatiilor interumane bazate pe respect reciproc, relatii interumane bazate pe existenta umanitatii reale din fiecare dintre noi.
Mesajul expozitiei subliniaza respectul reciproc intre comunitati, intre culturi, care exista in Dobrogea'.

Despre Uniunea Elena din Romania - Filiala Izvoarele
Pentru cele 22 comunitati elene din Romania, Uniunea Elena din Romania are un rol spiritual, cultural, educational, social - caritabil si de parteneriat social.
In prima jumatate a secolului XIX, familii de greci provenind din zona Salonicului s-au stabilit in Dobrogea intemeind satul Izvoarele. Astazi, aici locuieste singura comunitate compacta de greci din mediul rural romanesc.
In repertoriul Ansamblului 'Demetra', continuator al cantecului si dansului grecesc in cadrul Filialei Izvoarele a UER, exista similitudini cu repertoriul popular din localitati apropiate Salonicului. Trei distinse membre ale Ansamblului 'Demetra' sunt prezentate intr-o fotografie din cadrul expozitiei 'Dobrogea - Dincolo de fotografie'.

Despre Comunitatea Rusilor Lipoveni din Romania - Filiala Slava Cercheza
Comunitatea Rusilor Lipoveni din Romania este o asociatie cu caracter etnic, social, cultural si umanitar.
In secolul XVIII, rusii staroveri, stramosii rusilor lipoveni de astazi, au venit din zona raului Don si s-au stabilit in Dobrogea. Vechi traditii rusesti sunt prezente in comunitatea rusilor lipoveni din satul Slava Cercheza.
Printre membrii CRLR - Filiala Slava Cercheza prezentati in fotografiile din expozitia 'Dobrogea - Dincolo de fotografie' se numara:
Toma Ivan - deadea Vanea este pictor iconar, diacon al bisericii Sf Mare Mucenic Dimitrie si profesor de slavona
Stefan Gurei si Timofei Gurei - tata si fiu, pictori de icoane pe lemn foarte cunoscuti in lumea credinciosilor crestin - ortodocsi de rit vechi
Claudia Alempi - a transformat in arta pasiunea ei pentru flori. Culorile si parfumul florilor sale fac mai frumoasa viata intregii comunitati
Irina Mihailov - presedinte CRLR Slava Cercheza pana in anul 2007, a infiintat ansamblul folcloric 'Slaveanka', unul din principalii mesageri ai cantecului si dansului rusilor lipoveni din localitate.

Despre Uniunea Democrata Turca din Romania - Filiala Fantana Mare
Uniunea Democrata Turca din Romania crede in egalitatea sanselor si are convingerea ca orice om si orice comunitate reprezinta o potentiala valoare, un factor de creatie culturala si civilizatorie ce isi are locul sau legitim, firesc, in societatea romaneasca. UDTR pledeaza pentru o Romanie a respectului reciproc.
Satul Fantana Mare este locuit in totalitate de etnici turci. Satul este atestat documentar din secolul XII, iar despre geamia si cismeaua din centrul localitatii se stie in mod documentat ca exista din secolul XIX. Aceste doua constructii sunt prezentate in una dintre fotografiile din cadrul expozitiei 'Dobrogea - Dincolo de fotografie'. In prezent, locuitorii satului se ocupa cu cresterea animalelor si cultivarea pamantului.


Impreuna, in respect reciproc
Together, in mutual respect

invite you on November 14th 2018 to the 'Dobrogea - Beyond Photography' photography exhibition varnishing day,
an exhibition signed by Lucia Simion

The exhibition is dedicated to the celebration of 140 years since
the Dobrogea area was reunited with the Romanian territory

Lucia Simion: 'The 'Dobrogea - Beyond Photography' project is inspired by the people I met in several photography trips I made between 2013 - 2017 in the villages situated in the center and in the south of the Dobrogea area, local people who impressed me with their kindness, with the fact that they accepted with a smile, with friendship and relaxation, to be photographed.
Their openness to dialogue inspired me to bring to life this photography exhibition which guides the viewer's attention beyond the image itself, beyond the person's face, to the human being who smiles at you even he / she does not know you personally.
The project has been developed in 2018 through the collaboration with The Greek Union in Romania, The Lippovan Russian Community in Romania and The Turk Democratic Union in Romania.
The exhibition speaks about the existence of interpersonal relations based on mutual respect, relations based on our true deep humanity that exists in each of us. The message of the exhibition underlines the mutual respect between various communities, between cultures, that exists in the Dobrogea area.

About The Greek Union in Romania - The Izvoarele village Subsidiary
For the 22 Greek communities living in Romania, The Greek Union in Romania has a spiritual, cultural, educational, charitable and social partnership role.
In the first half of the XIXth century, Greek families coming from the Salonic area settled down in the Dobrogea area building the Izvoarele village. Today, here lives the only compact Greek community that exists in the Romanian rural zone.
In the repertory of The 'Demetra' Ensemble, which continues the Greek song and dance within the Izvoarele Subsidiary of The Greek Union in Romania, there are similarities with the folklore existing in the Salonic area. Three distinguished members of The 'Demetra' Ensemble are presented in a photography within the 'Dobrogea - Beyond Photography' exhibition.

About The Lippovan Russian Community in Romania - The Slava Cercheza village Subsidiary
The Lippovan Community in Romania is an ethnic, social, cultural and humanitarian Association.
In the XVIIIth century, the Russians settled down in the Dobrogea area coming from the Don river area. Old Russian traditions are still present today in the Lippovan Russian community living in the Slava Cercheza village.
Among the Lippovan Russian Community members living in Slava Cercheza who are presented in the 'Dobrogea - Beyond Photography' exhibition, we can see:
Mr Toma Ivan - deacon of the local church, he paints icons and teaches the old Russian language
Mr Stefan Gurei and Mr Timofei Gurei - father and son, they paint icons on wood and are well-known in the Lippovan Russian community
Mrs Claudia Alempi - she transformed in art her passion for flowers. The colors and the perfume of her flowers make a more beautiful life for the community in her village
Mrs Irina Mihailov - president of The Slava Cercheza Subsidiary of The Lippovan Russian Community in Romania until 2007, she initiated The 'Slaveanka' Folkloric Ensemble, one of the most important messengers of the Lippovan Russian traditional song and dance.

About The Turk Democratic Union in Romania - The Fantana Mare village Subsidiary
The Turk Democratic Union in Romania believes in the equality of chances and holds the conviction that every person and every community represents a potential value as a cultural and creative factor naturally belonging to the Romanian society. The Turk Democratic Union in Romania pleads for a mutual respect based Romania.
The Fantana Mare village is entirely inhabited by Turk people. The village is mentioned in XIIth century historical documents, and also in XIXth century documents. Today, the people living here raise animals and make agriculture.
