Biography

Research

My work explores the dynamics of the man environment relationship. On the one hand, the city dweller perceives space pragmatically, and its denaturation, with industralization and everything it involves, inevitably leads to the social collapse of the individual; on the other hand, villagers in remote areas, facing depopulation and subject to a similar set of social challenges, have an entirely different way of relating to space and nature. The hybrid, strained coexistence of natural living in harmony with the environment and the dilapidated industrial structures with their apocalyptic geometries, this antagonism that defines the geography of present-day Romania, is the subject of my images.
