Romanian parents carry a small casket and cross as they arrive at a Bucharest hospital to collect the body of their dead baby who died of AIDS in this February 6, 1990 file photo.

Radu Sigheti: I found out that there is a ward at a hospital in Bucharest where children with HIV positive were hospitalised. I thought this is a story worth pursuing, at the time I had no idea what AIDS meant and I wanted to find out, thinking it would make a good story.

I went there and took pictures of the children, aged between one to five years old but many looking like they were over 100; frail and helpless in their beds. One had died a day before.

The smell of chloride was punching. At the time they used to spread it around that ward thinking it would keep it sterilised. That smell and the sight of those children, there were about 20-30 hospitalised, made me anxious and after a while I decided to leave as I could not stand it anymore.

As I left with a friend we found his car, parked outside the hospital, with a flat tyre. He started working to replace it then at one moment I heard steps behind me.

When I turned I saw this picture and I knew why they were there, for the child who died of AIDS a day before. I grabbed the camera and I took one shot. In the moment the couple heard my shooter noise they raised their eyes and looked straight at me. I took one more frame and I put the camera down.

The look in their eyes said everything about their sorrow. I could not take any more pictures; I just followed them with my eyes as they slowly entered the hospital yard.

In the local referendum, due to be held on the same day as the country's general elections, residents are invited to state whether they agree with the relaunching of mining activities in the Apuseni Mountains, and the Rosia Montana extraction plan. The Rosia Montana Gold Corporation plans to open Europe's largest open cast gold mine in the town, and to use cyanide to mine 314 tonnes of gold and 1,500 tonnes of silver there. The plan is being strongly opposed by some locals, civic rights groups and ecologists. REUTERS/Radu Sigheti (ROMANIA - Tags: BUSINESS COMMODITIES POLITICS ELECTIONS EMPLOYMENT)

A miner looks on inside the ancient Roman gold mine Catalina Monulesti in Rosia Montana village, 428 km (266 miles) northwest of Bucharest, October 6, 2011. Catalina Monulesti is currently under restoration as a future part of a mining museum. Rosia Montana town, made up of 16 villages that dot the slopes along the river Rosia, has hundred-year-old churches and houses, cemeteries and ancient Roman mine galleries. It also has gold. But for those who live here, that is more of a bane than anything else. Canada's Gabriel Resources wants to build Europe's largest open cast gold mine in Rosia Montana, a 15-year quest that has put the area at the centre of a national debate between heritage and development.

The moon rises near an apartment block in Bucharest May 5, 2012. A "super Moon" will light up Saturday's night sky in a once-a-year cosmic show, overshadowing a meteor shower from remnants of Halley's Comet, the U.S. space agency NASA said. The Moon will seem especially big and bright since it will reach its closest spot to Earth at the same time it is in its full phase, NASA said.
