New York Film Academy photography faculty member, Kathleen Laraia McLaughlin, has been working on a long-term documentary project in northern Transylvania, Romania since 1999. Her book, The Color of Hay: The Peasants of Maramures, published in 2011, is a culmination of this work. Last year she exhibited her photographs at the Sibiu International Film Festival (in Romania) and was part of their Masters Lecture Series. This October she returns to Romania with the help of a grant from the Institute of Romanian Culture. You can follow her progress on her Facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/
