Mioveni is a Romanian town located between Bucharest and the Carpathians. After the fall of communism, the town managed to survive thanks to the automobile industry. All its residents live today at the rhythm of the factory. For almost three years, photographer Anne Leroy and journalist Julia Beurq followed the daily life of the residents of Mioveni, bringing images and stories which make the reader immerse into the intimacy of a working life. The survey is a marker of their photographic and journalistic approaches. They favor the long-term experience of the field. In Mioveni, Romania, with empathy, they came closer to the people and their stories. This book restores their immersion into the field in this working-class town, which, with the acquisition of Dacia by Renault 15 years ago, seems to have escaped the fate of other single-industrial towns fallen into ruin after the fall of communism. The results of their research around the relationship between text and image unfold over the book, between permeability and complementarity, without ever being either illustrative or redundant.
