the first shooting session…

This took place on the 4th of July 2009. What a day for a shooting, isn’t it?

Anyway…with no experience whatsoever in a photo session, just my camera, one softbox light bought the day before, no tripod, flashlight or light meter and scared as shit I started this shooting aiming to impress the agency that tested me.

The model, Alexzander, represented by ScoopModels in Copenhagen, was in Milan for the summer. So we met for a few hours on a sunny Saturday morning. After a bottle of Coke and 2 ice creams, we came up with 17 photos that I presented to his agency here in Milan. FutureModels that is.

Even if the photos were slightly ruined by the post-processing, they were pleased with the result and decided to use some of the photos, by rotation, for his book. A couple of images are used by his agency in Denmark - that’s where Copenhagen is :) - as well.

Having said that… I present you… Alexzander!

the decision / decizia...

That moment we all go through, when no escape seems conceivable, when everything suffocates you and your only wish is to escape, to forget, to cease any emotion. To leave from the surrounding world, from everyone gazing you with their expectations, those who feel unsatisfied when you disappoint them. Is that moment when you are by yourself, just as you are. You and your own thoughts...

the decision / decizia - constanta, 2004

Acel moment, prin care cu totii trecem, cand toate portitele de scapare par inchise, cand totul te sufoca si iti doresti doar sa evadezi, sa uiti, sa nu mai simti nimic. Sa te indepartezi de lumea ce te inconjoara, de toti cei ce te privesc, ce au asteptari de la tine si sunt nemultumiti cand ii dezamagesti. Acel moment cand esti doar tu, asa cum esti. Tu si gandurile tale...

and then I suddenly remembered…

Late last year, on a tuesday, I saw Parlea Brothers Quintet in concert.

It was cold outside, as I recall, but they quickly warmed things up with their music. 

This was fun!

echoes of my exposition…

21 photographs of mine were the subject of an exposition at Cafepedia in Bucharest. As this was a general overview on my work, images from “Smog City”, “Odyssey” and “You and me” series were exhibited.

In the past days, 3 images (pictured) from the ones exhibited were sold and 3 others are reserved. There are still 15 prints available! So hurry up if you want to get your hands on one of them!

Details will be sent upon request.
