During an eight year project beginning in 1999, Kathleen Laraia McLaughlin lived over a year with a peasant family in an isolated region of Maramures, northern Transylvania. There she encountered a unique example of cultural attitudes toward privacy. The Maramuresenii live guarded behind tall gates and fences while maintaining a "beautiful room," (or even a "beautiful house") where they display their pristine wares - tapestry, clothing, embroidery, wood carvings, pottery, and rugs. The way these private spaces are used to generate public gossip is a lesson in moments of voyeurism.
