I am a journalist turned photographer, turned digital artist, turned graphic designer. I design for print and web, I create surreal fine art photography and I write graphic design articles and photoshop tutorials. Hence – I am a creative person full of curiosity, ideas and love for everything image related.

My images start and end as photographs. Each image is composed of many photographs, combined to create a picture that is no documentary recording, but a frame in a story, a snapshot of an image lit by imagination, by memory, by thought. I am using modern techniques (computer processing) to achieve these results, some of which are similar to darkroom processes, others – with cutting and pasting for collating, and others – with painting and drawing. Each image is sketched, researched and planed in detail before shooting. The postprocessing is a long phase that takes much skill, determination and energy. Each image may take anything from several weeks to months from concept to final details.

I was born in Moldova in1989. I have always been interested in people around me. Most of all I like eyes and hands of people, because in them it is possible to read all life of a person, to learn every side of his character. Photography became my hobby in youth and the way to express myself, to discover my soul and to understand the people surrounding me.I got my first SLR camera Canon Rebel XTi (400 d) in December, 2008, so I began to take photos, mostly portraits.
In summer 2008, I won two Moldavian photo contests and I was awarded a remarkable trip to a beautiful city of Lviv, UkraineIn January, 2009 I became finalist of the European photo contest called Through Their Eyes organized by Karat Coalition. It was my first victory. And in February, 2010 I got my first publication in Amateur Photographer magazine (UK), which I waited for so long.

Exposição Fotográfica “Beautifully Imperfect”

O artista romeno Dan Andrei amplia a realidade, quebra os limites bidimensionais da fotografia e a transporta para o emocional. Novos significados surgem a partir da sobreposição das imagens em camadas. Apesar de independentes, os elementos dialogam entre si e comportam-se como uma única imagem. Dan Andrei faz vir à tona memórias, relíquias de um passado recente que misturadas transportam o observador para uma nova imagem. Uma materialidade que vai se construindo aos poucos na medida em que mais elementos são adicionados. As figuras perdem nitidez, mas ganham em significados, emanam magia (Jose Roberto Moreira, curador e galerista).

Há momentos na vida em que nos questionamos sobre significados, motivações e razões de estar na vida. Há momentos em que nos questionamos sobre a vida, tal como ela é ou como a imaginamos ser. Há momentos em que deixamos a nossa imaginação voar, em que nos permitimos sonhar. Às vezes é difícil distinguir se o mundo em que vivemos é realidade ou sonho. Dan Andrei é um sonhador. Ele passa por momentos assim, não é realista, e, tal como qualquer outro sonhador, não é perfeito, mas é lindamente imperfeito. A partir daí, ele tenta transformar a realidade em outra realidade, a sua própria realidade.

Dan Andrei nasceu na Roménia, actualmente vive e trabalha em Cascais.

Proiect “People I didn’t know”: http://peopleididntknow.co.uk/

“People I didn’t know” is a self initiated project which aims to shed new light on portrait photography. It all began when – a long time ago – I stopped someone on the street in London and asked them to pose for me. Well, if you live in London you know it’s the city of no eye contact, where everyone looks straight ahead and strives to keep their private life well, private.
The images for this project were made ad-hoc on the street, on the tube, in shops, bars and train stations using most of the time natural light – and very rarely artificial light consisting of no more than a flash on the camera. Only minor adjustments were made in post processing including the black and white conversion.

Every person in these images was, at the time of shooting, a stranger I stopped on the street and asked to pose for me. They are the people I didn’t know. With many of them I keep in touch regularly and some became my friends. Some of them became my models and they pose for my students during my photography courses.

‘People I didn’t know’ is a homage to human nature, the art of photography and a quest to bring together our solitary Londoner souls.

There are hundreds of images on my drive which need converted and uploaded. Images are being uploaded on a daily basis so please keep looking.
