Răzvan Dima is a photographer based in Bucharest, Romania.

The photographer states: “Every January, same story. After briefly doing their job, contributing to the Christmas Spirit, the Christmas trees are taken out of the house, thrown out the window, abandoned. With [this series] I tried to put this bad habit in a different light”. Quite literally, I’d say!
