Voilà a vernal veil of paramour passions plaguing my masculine masquerade of (self) punitive purity pursuits! I wanted a landscape. I wanted the desolation of an orphaned lifeguard post on a quiet Thursday beach. I wanted the contrast of the sangre paint keeping the rust at bay against the milky turquoise sky forsaken by those sharp seagulls that never shut the hell up. I wanted the onshore breeze to wrestle with me for the chance to click the shutter. I wanted to mirror myself in a fortuitous freeze frame. Yet she was there.

Alexandru Crisan (b. Bucharest, Romania 1978) is a visual artist specialized in fine art photography. He received his first film camera when he was 12 years old, and, a quarter of a century later, still has a soft spot for the black and white prints. An architect by formal education, his professional career in photography began in 2008 and since then, he has focused on completing and promoting his eclectic art projects. More details on:
