This photo is a part of my project called “Poisoned Beauty”, which tells us the story of the natural disaster of the “Apuseni Mountains” in Romania, but in a beautiful abstract way. This abstract colorful pattern is created by nature combined with the chemical waste resulted from the copper and gold mining process.

Gheorghe Popa is a pharmacist and a nature photographer by trade. He was born in 1982 in Aiud, a small town from Transylvania, Romania. Popa’s unique ability is his consistency to meticulously engage in his long-term projects, with environments and landscapes, often left unnoticed at first glance. His photographs create a monument to unique beauty that lies within untouched nature. Popa’s aim is to bring responsibility and attention to his viewers and encourage them to cherish and protect these environments. His imaginative photos of Cuejdel and Geam?na lakes gained him widespread recognition
