Hello, I am Sandu Tarlev from Chisinau, Republic of Moldova. I work in reportage and street photography. A few years ago my friends invited me to photograph their rap-metal concert for my newspaper where I worked.
After some time I begin to photograph all concerts in this underground style. In our country metal and hip-hop scene is not very developed, but this events have some hundreds of fans, and I want to share that in our post-soviet-poor country there is an alternative music scene and people who love this shit. UNDER is from underground, from black moldavian cellars.
