Dana Popa

En: This week I had the privilege to meet Dana Popa, a documentary photographer, born in Bacau, Ro and now based in London, U.K. Her photographs were published in magazines around the world. Dana's work was shown in many international exhibitions and she got important photojournalism awards. How, she's working on great projects which she approach in a unique style. I recommend her website. It is very inspiring.
