NEW Open call for CAPITOL – Photography

Save or Cancel is looking to recharge the collective memory with new instances in the life of the CAPITOL ensemble of monuments and we know you can do so much more!

Inspired photographers have already captured interesting moments at CAPITOL Cinema / Summer Theatre, some informed by aesthetic qualities – the spectacular architecture that instills lucid dreams, while other images reveal a dramatic reality – abandon and decay. Relevant and emotional, these images help us see CAPITOL from new perspectives. Without wishing to be exhaustive, we are happy to note that amongst the photographers which were drawn to the monuments, we can name Cristian IGU Vasile, Ștefan Tuchila, Reptilianul, Grit Photography, dozens of Instagrammers and geocachers.

Join them and actively help the promotion of heritage!
