the Path of the Sun

Beeing able to capture a period of time far beyond our own vision is incredible and yet very simple.
The analogue camera was facing south and loaded with photographic paper instead of film. Exposure time was of 24hrs. The Sun traced it's arc from east to west.

In july 2004 I gave a workshop on photography at the "International Spiritual Art Camp ARTE DIEM" in Romania.
On the last day, I photographed friends for Yoga Magazine.
Four years latter, on the month of September, two french publications (Sciences Humaines & Muze) used these very images. Click on them if you want to read (les textes en français)....

Iringo with flowers.

the grim

When Diana asked me to photograph her as a "Grim Reaper" I did not know what that was but I made the picture anyway.
She likes to play all kind of caracters, but she is much more of an angel than a Grim.

Când ea zâmbeşte se înseninează. Aşa e Alexandra.
Prezenţa ei încântă întotdeauna, chiar dacă uneori e gălăgioasă sau alteori prea tăcută. E Taur – mereu atentă la vitalitatea sa (găteşte bine să ştiţi!). Vorbeşte mult despre visele ei. Găseşte semnificaţii ascunse ale întâmplărilor, de parcă ar vedea cu alt fel de ochii decât restul lumii. E un exemplu în ce priveşte practica hatha yoga şi tapas-urile.
N-ai cum să aşterni în cuvinte farmecul ei. Cred ca Alexandra e un mister chiar şi pentru ea însăşi…
