    The "Dancing With Costica" series began when photographer Jane Long decided to brush up on her retouching skills. After finding the <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/costicaacsinte/ " target="external">Costica Acsinte Archive on Flickr</a>, she became fascinated with the images and their subjects, wanting to bring them to life and give them a story.<br>Costica Acsinte was a Romanian war photographer who, after discharge, opened a studio in Slobozia, Romania. Around 5,000 of his glass plates were purchased by the Ialomita County Museum and in 2013, Cezar Popescu started to digitize them.
