In the 1960s and 70s, the town of Baile Tusnad in Romania was famous for holidays and weekends enjoying the town’s hot springs and spas. The pictures tourists often took home would depict the German Sheperd dog of the local photographer George Nitescu. A unique star in almost every picture taken home from Baile Tusnad.
Hours after capturing the moment, pictures could be collected from the dog’s home; photographer Nitescu’s urban villa – a place where the tourists mingled with the locals.
The pictures in the book show changing faces, the past sights of a Romanian city in its prime, and one photogenic German Shepherd dog without a name.
