The lost boys of Bucharest


Exploring the generation time forgot in post-Communist Bucharest

Fashion photographer and filmmaker, Joost Vandebrug’s latest project sees him roaming the streets and tunnels of Bucharest. In a world devoid of parental guidance, the stereotypical tropes are there; drug abuse, run-ins with the law, gang-mentality, yet they are eclipsed and often subverted by the familial bond between these so-called ‘Lost Boys’ - Bucharest’s youth left behind after the fallout of Communism. Led by a myserious tattooed character known as 'Bruce Lee', the group make up just four of an estimated thousand homeless children who end up forming tunnel communities together. 

Vandebrug has been documenting the lives of these homeless boys since 2011 and is now gathering together over 6000 stills and 30 hours of HD footage, all ready to be aired but in need of a financial boost. Through Kickstarter, Vandebrug and DUST magazine, who will be the art-producers for the project, are looking for pledges to make the book, “Cinci Lei”, a reality.
