When he arrived in Poland the country was on the verge of collapse. There was little food in the shops and the queues to buy bread were immense. In Ceausescu\'s Romania, people\'s lives were reduced to a succession of dark days; the Securitate wielded absolute control and used informants, bribery and violence to beat any instinct for freedom out of individuals. In the same period, in Yugoslavia, the beginnings of what was to become the catastrophe of successive years were being laid out, while the West looked on in supreme indifference. In the autumn of 1989, everything changed. The various regimes of the communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe began to collapse in Budapest, Berlin, Warsaw, Prague, Sofia and Bucharest in a domino effect that continued in Albania and ended two years later in the Soviet Union. Ponzio continued his travels across an immense territory with a Leica, three Nikons and 100 rolls of film, in search of the people of the East, documenting the old energy that had been fortified through pain and sacrifice, now joined by a new energy, full of hope. Year after year, Ponzio returned to capture the many faces and stark differences of the other Europe, in search of the elements that make up the shared destiny of the peoples of Eastern Europe. Collected here are his stunning portraits of their traditions and faith, humility and courage, vulnerability and survival.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"En 1987, Fabio Ponzio d\u00E9cide de se lancer dans une odyss\u00E9e photographique \u00E0 la recherche de l\'Europe de l\'Est. Lorsqu\'il est arriv\u00E9 en Pologne, le pays \u00E9tait au bord de l\'effondrement. Il y avait peu de nourriture dans les magasins et les files d\'attente pour acheter du pain \u00E9taient immenses. Dans la Roumanie de Ceausescu, la vie des gens a \u00E9t\u00E9 r\u00E9duite \u00E0 une succession de jours sombres ; la Securitate exer\u00E7ait un contr\u00F4le absolu et avait recours \u00E0 des informateurs, \u00E0 des pots-de-vin et \u00E0 la violence pour battre tout instinct de libert\u00E9 individuelle. \u00C0 la m\u00EAme \u00E9poque, en Yougoslavie, les d\u00E9buts de ce qui allait devenir la catastrophe des ann\u00E9es suivantes se dessinaient, tandis que l\'Occident regardait dans une indiff\u00E9rence supr\u00EAme. \u00C0 l\'automne 1989, tout a chang\u00E9. Les diff\u00E9rents r\u00E9gimes des pays communistes d\'Europe centrale et orientale ont commenc\u00E9 \u00E0 s\'effondrer \u00E0 Budapest, Berlin, Varsovie, Prague, Sofia et Bucarest dans un effet domino qui s\'est poursuivi en Albanie et qui a pris fin deux ans plus tard en Union sovi\u00E9tique. Ponzio a poursuivi ses voyages \u00E0 travers un immense territoire avec un Leica, trois Nikons et 100 rouleaux de film, \u00E0 la recherche des gens de l\'Est, documentant l\'ancienne \u00E9nergie qui avait \u00E9t\u00E9 fortifi\u00E9e par la douleur et le sacrifice, maintenant rejointe par une nouvelle \u00E9nergie, pleine d\'espoir. Ann\u00E9e apr\u00E8s ann\u00E9e, Ponzio revient pour capturer les nombreux visages et les diff\u00E9rences marqu\u00E9es de l\'autre Europe, \u00E0 la recherche des \u00E9l\u00E9ments qui composent le destin commun des peuples d\'Europe de l\'Est.
