X-ray

Hello everyone!

Long time no see…. I was planing (still do) to redo my website and stopped posting on the blog, but then I had lot’s of work and decided to postpone it until I had more time available. Until then here is a new post…..I’m way behind with the updates but I will get there… eventually :P

Cosmin Goron is a well knows male model from Transylvania a personal fitness trainer and a good friend of mine.
For some time he told me that he would like a different photo shoot even nude. Everything went pretty fast, the day we decided that we will do the shooting I was looking for inspiration, and I came across an image that inspired me to propose him to dye his hair blond almost white…. He said yes, I was very surprised and pleased he accepted. I had a feeling that he will look very different and very good and I was right :D
We started with some clothes on but quickly we decided that it’s not working and we both agreed to try nude. At first we had minor problems with the lighting and figuring out the poses, but after a while all was “running” smoothly. We had some fun with some prints and in the end we added a shirt ;)

Here he is! Enjoy ;)

Rebel Rose

Andreea came from Bucharest to Cluj because she wanted a photo-session with me and a new tattoo with (my own and favorite tattoo artist) Marius Iacoban from BasTattoo.
Searching for a location I found this incredible abandoned building, full of graffiti and interesting windows which turned out to be perfect for the photo shoot we planned.

Enjoy!

…… writing a city

Life is a river
that’s what granddad always use to say
…..a beginning, an end,  a million different ways in between.
I used this metaphor my whole life …..how it ebbed and flowed following the path of least resistance barreling straight through the impossible, clear as air and black as night. But no matter what direction or how it moved or looked like, the point according to granddad was that the river always moved forward. What kept him running the rabbits until he was old and gray: the mystery of what laid around the bend.
These days that mystery is hard to find. The river is distant the sky clouded with concrete. For many of us life’s great adventure all is beauty, all its connection, sails by unnoticed.
Funny thing is the river is never that far off


Granddad was all about those connections, he had his hands in earth as much as he did machines, maybe that’s why he understad both sides. Sure we till and cut, we reap and sow,  yeay we do great damage, but we are also capable of great good. After all, no matter how smart we think we are, we are just another part of the mystery.

I once read

that life is a act of suicide and its true,

probably we are the only “creature” on the planet that know this.”

Maybe that’s why we are so good at killing, it’s going to die anyway might as well have it for ourselves. So we take, we take some more but in the proces we kill others less tangible identities, things like flow, joy, interaction, purpose, another way thought the world is lost, not by one particular person but by instinct. Survival  the very chaos of life itself.

We spent hours thinking,

designing, questioning, also you can spent a few seconds

lost in one moment.

No time to think, just reaction, focus, all the worry washed away by the rush
