But his passion was photography and as soon as the war was over he opened a studio “Foto Splendid C. Acsinte” in Slobozia.

Australian artist Jane Long fell in love with Ascinte’s photographs and set about restoring, recoloring and transforming the images into beautiful prints from a forgotten past.
