Faces of December

King Mihai I., Romania’s last king, dies after seventy years in exile in Switzerland, and now, December 2017, he is laid out in an open casket in Bucharest for three days. Johannes Holzhausen and cameraman Michael Schindegger document the event from up close: positioned directly next to the sarcophagus, they become witnesses to an intoxicating mourning.
