“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
Starting my introduction with this quote from The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho) is intended as a personal note about myself. This is the premise from which I fuel my passion for photography for more than 10 years and I’m working everyday on getting better and better at it. I honestly believe that if you really want something and you believe you can do it, all the elements will be put in motion for you to achieve that thing.
What I love the most from all the photography types is the documentary one, of which I’m most passionate about because when I work on documenting an event, for a theater show, a concert, or in another project, I feel like I’m the closest to my inner self, the true one, who started this journey. Actually the first photographs I took ‘with passion’ were in the street photography genre. The first years of my learning curve were mostly spent on the streets, observing and feeling the energy of the people and places surrounding me.
I’m currently based in Bucharest, Romania and I travel wherever my passion and work take me. A big part of the work I do is theater photography and different cultural/corporate events. Also it’s been a significant number of years since I’m working as an official photographer at the George Enescu Festival and I’m still on board, waiting with excitement for each next edition to come.
In the past years I’ve worked with: George Enescu Festival, National Theater Festival, Spotlight Festival, B-FIT in the Street, Astra Film Festival, Unfinished Festival and others.
And as institutions I’m happy to have been part of projects with: Uniter, Artexim, Excelsior Theater(Bucharest), Bulandra Theater (Bucharest), Odeon Theater(Bucharest), Nottara Theater(Bucharest), Teatrul Mic (Bucharest), Unteatru Theater (Bucharest), National Opera (Bucharest), the National Opera for children (Bucharest), Tandarica Theater (Bucharest), Toma Caragiu Theater (Ploiesti), Maria Filotti Theater (Braila), Sica Alexandrescu Theater (Brasov).
