This wonderful album comes as a completion to Robert's ambition to “revive” the past of Aiud through the old postcards collected with love and ambition, but in the same time marks an important page also in his career as a photographer. This journey in time takes us in a fascinating past, an aristocratic Aiud from another century which imposes through a special charm. The magic of the present overlaps masterly, as an image from a parallel universe, thanks to Robert's inspiration to create a fusion beyond the space and time. These photos became real works of art which bears the mark of a mature photographer, with personality. The exhibition organized during the “Inter-Art” International Art Camp 2017 represented a unique event, full of originality and talent. Everything is encompassed by the album that will remain a testimony of a multilateral artistic act.

Robert's album is made starting from an exciting concept which propose to reveal a double meaning of the image: that of preserving the trace of memory of time and that of the contemporary dimension.
There are, we might say, two elements which should be canceled between them, to create a visual delimitation. But there is a new moment, full with visual meanings and interpretative perspectives. The image is like a destiny assumed by both the author and the viewer. This destiny of the image, of Robert Lixandru's photo, is a new element of the album.
Robert Lixandru creates a new destiny for the photography of the past century, a new visual impression for Aiud ...
