WHY   PHOTOGRAPHY

 Sometimes the visions and shapes fighting against oblivion are just fascinating…   and photography is a form of memory;

Each tiny grain of oblivion will turn into another grain of sand, falling down my hourglass…   Then, with every grain of memory found, I could refill the hourglass again …

Sometimes,  I get the feeling the lapse is irreversible and grand like the memory itself …    Still, I’ll keep searching …

Often, the routine of remembering turns out to be almost involuntary …    but essential if I want to forget oblivion … 

Most of the time, I end up benumbing myself with vestiges of what I used to feel …

The lapse tends to be irreversible indeed …   but with each rediscovered grain of retrospection I can create new substance for my hourglass …

… in a new perspective giving birth to a new and somehow different memory…

AROUND  &  ABOUT

 This site is nothing more than my personal visual diary, my booklet of life notes, helping me to resuscitate bits and bytes of  past events. 

I was born ‘79 in Cluj, Romania,  I’ve lived in many places and traveled the world in search of my memories…   but yet not enough …   this is why I’m still searching …   sometimes I find them …   sometimes I don’t …   but new ones come along and I take photos every now and then to help me remember …   anyhow, I tend to believe that I’ll get back home one day …   with or without my memories …   my everyday life & work has unfortunately not so much in common with photography and I hardly find time to shoot …   This is probably the reason why I forget so much and have to keep searching …
