In a region of south-central Romania, the Boyash people live and work still carving the same simple woodcrafts they’ve sold in towns and villages for more than 200 years.
In their small settlements, geese and dogs roam the streets, children play and the old men and women sit outside their doorways, wooden logs braced between their feet or on their laps, sharp knives shaving thin strips from the pale-colored sticks. Under their hands, the rough wood rapidly evolves into that universal kitchen tool, the wooden spoon.
They’re a simple people and their way of life has existed in its present form for generations. But it may all be coming to an end.
