Romany introduces another remarkable addition to his artistic journey where he presents a set of artworks all having the black and white theme, pictures of places that have a lot of stories behind them. He shows through his art how precious a place is only because of the memories and stories people leave behind.

Looking at the pictures, you find yourself faced with so many questions about the places, the people who ever lived here, and the stories that could possibly have happened in that place. The artworks engage the viewer to look for answers to so many questions Romany poses via his pictures. Even when people are shown in the pictures, there is still so much vagueness around them, and we are left clueless about many details. This adds excitement and emotion to the experience of viewing his pictures.
