Gheorghe is a pharmacist but has always loved photography. His current project, Poisoned Beauty, is an artistic protest - a series of aerial photographs that tell the story of the village of Geămana in the Romania's Apuseni Mountains, which became an ecological disaster when it was turned into a tailings pond for waste from copper and gold processing.
