22-year-old photographer and digital artist, oddball of the family, art lover since i was a weeping little girl. i graduated from the Bucharest National University of Arts, Photography & Video department, in 2016. right now i am pursuing a Master course in Ethnology, Cultural Anthropology and Folklore at the Faculty of Letters from the University of Bucharest.
i discovered photography at the age of 13, while doing Maths and Chemistry homework.
back then i had no idea what growing up meant – i thought it had to do with greater freedom, like the freedom to make your own breakfast, wear lipstick, or walk on high heels.
when i was 5 or 6, my parents would ask me to take their pictures during our trips. i remember being fascinated by that cheap plastic film camera, with all the chromatic aberrations and grainy surfaces. like Neil Armstrong left his foot mark on the moon, i would leave my finger mark on the corner of the image.
a little later i discovered that immortality can happen to humans, too. by then, i had read about jellyfish that never die. but how could jellyfish live forever and humans not?
i was never able to stick to one genre of photography. the world is too vast to fit into a landscape or a portrait. it needs to be painted with so much light that it would lead the sun towards eternal blindness.
