Will one photo of two ever be enough?

I'm sure everybody has a smell that they don't want to forget. You might keep an empty, discontinued perfume bottle which you occasionally smell or you just open an old book but there's something about a specific smell that some of us, like i said, don't want to forget.  Mine is old Kodak film...most than likely the smell has been completely altered due to its chemical composition (the film is from 1960) nonetheless - every once in a blue moon i open the canister and mmmm, that smell. I LOVE IT.

It's All About Happiness

October 05, 2013

Photographing this event was considerably special. Even though i've always supported same-sex marriages, i've never been so close to observing and recording the emotions that run on such a big day. And yes, i'm sensitive and get teary eyes all the time at some speech or another, regardless of the wedding but at Cleo and Go-Go wedding i really couldn't hold back and there were a few tears (true, hidden from the public eye cause i m a professional :)  ) when the closest people to the brides shared their love and support for the couple in what i consider the best speeches i've heard so far. And as somebody put it so well, "it's all about finding happiness". Here's to Cleo and Go-Go!!!! As for us, may we all find the happiness we deserve!

 

 

 

 

 

 


Wall Work

Enjoy my favorite and most heartfelt pieces of mine. Yes, my heart is abstract and square-ish.

 

 

 

 

This small font line says that you should really absorb these images cause they will be, together with other pieces, on an exhibit wall and it will cost a lot of money to get one. Square hearts are expensive. 


About Colors

March 18, 2013


Influenced by Starry Night, bored of static images and in love with Color. This is the "place" where i m heading with some of the following imagery. I try to keep it simple...true to its form and its intensity. An idea, a thought that came and left, no other day will the colors be the same. These were the colors on March 16th, 2013 at Joshua Tree.

My First Jewish Wedding

December 17, 2012

True, i find black and white photography much easier to deal with than color photography. True, i sometimes transform a color photo to black and white because I'm not happy with its original colors, they don't satisfy my photoreceptor cells and i choose the easy way out.  True, i prefer color photography to black and white just because i understand (or at least i hope to understand) the challenge behind it. YET, i deliberately blackened and whitened the following photos. I wanted to come as close as possible to what i remember to be my mom and dad's wedding photos. I have never photographed a wedding and despite the grueling hard work i very much enjoyed shooting this one. There were traditions  involved - the kind that I, as a Romanian, understand and i really hope i captured them.
