On December 1st every year, Romanians celebrate Ziua Marii Unirii - Great Unification Day. The national holiday marks the declaration of union between Romania and Transylvania in 1918.
On that day military parades stomp across the country. The biggest is in the capital, Bucharest, where tens of thousands turn out to watch soldiers and police march from the Palace of the Parliament to Arcul de Triumf; followed, flanked and flown-over by tanks, trucks and jets.
Amusing, sweet and solemn, these are pictures of the onlooking crowd, flying their flags and keeping warm in leather and fur. The influence of the 1980s - both politically and stylistically - hangs heavy in the air.
An ongoing project, featured here is a selection of images from four years, 2017 to the eerily empty 2020 edition.
