I was selected to take part in a group exhibition visual arts festival Oscar Lights Vama (Vama Sub Lumini de Oscar – VSLO) with my series “mystic portraits“
I’ve always been fascinated by people. I like looking at them, studying their characteristics, their reaction, getting to know their stories. I believe each human being is unique, beautiful and unpredictable.
It usually happens to discover a face and ask myself “what is this person doing here, in our days?”. It seems like his/her face has a story that is from another time, and it seems like the modern days don’t fit right. Because every face has its story, I try to transmit, to encourage people through this series to never forget to dream and to try bringing out hidden parts that might make their lives even more beautiful. Live every second, minute, hour, day, year in harmony with them, as well as with everything from their surroundings.
The exhibition will be held on 25th of August 2014.

Editor’s Note: We really liked this shot because of the clever play with depth-of-field that the photographer has used. We like that the focus of the shot is on the model’s face and detailed clothing, we think this draws the viewer’s attention centrally which in turn creates a balanced image to look at. We also like the soft eye-contact the model has with the viewer.
This series of photographs presents a love story that passes through different stages until it reaches to the stability and emotional maturity that we all crave for in a relationship. The battles that take place within us, the desire for possessiveness and freedom, doubts, anxiety, the thrills of love are all pieces that compose the unstable path of love. This series is surrounded by mystery. The uncertainty of a relationship will make you move forward and face the challenges that stand between you and your happiness. The hugs and kisses of your loved one will always open new horizons, they will bring to light a part of you, undiscovered until then …

Editor’s Note: We loved this shot because of the way the photographer has got half the shot in focus and the lower half is not. We think that this is really clever as its focused the viewer’s attention on the woman’s face and the story she is telling through her facial expression. We also love the grainy quality of the shot, stylizing it to the idea of film.
Editor’s Note: We really loved this shot because of the use of a fast shutter-speed and a short depth-of-field to create the white specs around the model; it adds interest to the image. We also love that the photographer has taken the photograph from above eye-level and how the model’s still got eye-contact with the camera, this draws the viewer in.
