Anton Roland Laub, born and grown in Bucharest, moved to Germany in 2000 where he studied at the New School for Photography and the Weissensee School of Art in Berlin. Bucharest’s recent history – seen particularly through the prism of urbanism – as well as the stigmata of Ceaușescu’s dictatorship are one of his main focuses as a photographer.
