"Photography is very emotive and captivating" - Leonard Joel
"Lighting is effective and creates a dreamy aura" - LensCulture
From the love of nature, people, places
"My work reflects my life philosophy. I try to find and reflect fundamental values that define us as humans: innocence, creativity, inner peace, love, cosmic balance, zen and integration with nature and the world around us.In 2002, I moved to Australia, a new part of the globe from my country of birth, Romania – and a whole world of opportunities was unveiled. I remember stopping in Cairns airport on that very first trip and marveling at the raw yellow-green grass; it looked so vibrant and fresh. Soon, the colorful birds, sunrises and sunsets, and the red earth of the continent made an instant impact. I wanted and still try to share how full of color and diverse nature is in Australia. As a photographer, I aim to keep a fresh perspective, as if I see everything for the first time.Other opportunities for traveling around the world developed, and in 2014 I decided to take up photography as an aspiring artist. In 2016 I had the chance to go on safaris in South Africa and had the first encounter with wild animals in their natural habitat. In 2017 I went to China and was moved by the poetry of Guilin area, with its karst formations and Li river sliding through. I hope that my work can be seen as a discovery course in our world’s natural and man-made wonders. 2019 was the year when I discovered the magic of the unique earth structures found in Turkey, Israel and Jordan. Understanding the geological tension of this land was a turning point in realising that peace and harmony between the nations of the Middle East can only be achieved by a congruent effort."
