Urma, Mani Neumann si fantezii cu blitzuri

•March 28, 2010 • 1 Comment

Dupa cum stiti, sunt alaturi de trupa  Urma de un an de zile, an in care probabil am petrecut mai mult timp cu ei decat cu oricine altcineva.

E o poveste ce a inceput frumos, cand un prieten, a fost intrebat de Mani Gutau daca stie pe cineva care le-ar putea face o fotografie in studio. Trupa Urma avea sa revina dupa pauza de aproximativ 3 ani. Nici macar ei nu stiau ce se va intampla.  Erau 3 oameni care s-au hotarat la o bere sa reinceapa sa cante. Si bine au facut.

Au ajuns la mine in studio[…]

Concert Urma – Ateneul Roman

•March 25, 2010 • 7 Comments

Ateneul Roman este, din punctul meu de vedere, singurul loc din Bucuresti care pastreaza acel ceva ce a disparut din acest oras paralelipipedic si lipsit de gust. Prezenta lui e o marturie, o dovada ca a existat viata in aceasta zona etern defavorizata, umbrit un pic de atentia scazuta ce i se acorda si de selectia destul de stricta a evenimentelor ce au loc in aceasta cladire minunata.

Primul contact cu Ateneul a fost prin clasa a 2-a. A fost o perioada in care mergeam in fiecare vineri impreuna cu bunicul meu, iar acea sala mare, rotunda, cu o acustica perfecta si cu scaune rosii in care rasunau viorile lui Paganini mi-a ramas placut imprimata in memorie.

Timisoara And Cluj – Urma

•March 13, 2010 • 2 Comments

We’re back in February, just came to Bucharest after my exhibition in Verona. We left for Timisoara where Urma would have their concert, followed by Cluj on the second day.

The winter passed and our route was right on the freshly repaired road to Sibiu. When we got to Dealul Negru I thought we made a wrong turn and got to some historical site with trenches from the second world war. I’m not kidding, there were 40 cm deep craters all […]

Long Time No See & Sneak Peak Into The Future Posts

•March 3, 2010 • Leave a Comment

I know, I know, I’ve been busy, didn’t post in a while.  I needed a little break. Still need it now, but at least I got some time off from bad things that were happening when I thought nothing else could go wrong.

3 trips to Verona for the exhibition, my first exhibition there to be more precise. Some photos from the exhibition can be seen here. It was good, the people liked my work and there should be a couple more exhibitions on the way.

While things seemed to be ok, reality was a little different. That actually being the reason for this break. Before I left for London, disaster struck and forced me to use the services of a well known data recovery company that I didn’t want to use. Like all things in life that seem to be connected, when one thing goes wrong, many others follow and support is not there where you think it is. The winter was a bliss for those who love it, but for me, Christmas is just beginning to show up. New year’s eve also.

After nearly 2 months away from home and unfinished work piling up, we left for Freiburg, where Urma held their live performance during the Jawala Festival. I think there were close to 900 people for the concert and they had a good time. And not just young people. There were people of all ages, and I liked that. I was for the first time in Germany and I’ll surely return. There’s lots to be seen and the first impression was great. Lots of places on the list.

Last trip to Verona, which ended just yesterday actually had some skiing in it. Skiing was a vital occupation of mine, which had a critical pause when I broke my knee in April 2008 (torn ACL). That marked the time when I really started to study photography which slowly became what it is now, so I guess it’s true that everything has a meaning in life. But now it’s clear to me. Once you have it in you, you can’t rest apart from it for […]

London’s Underground

•December 26, 2009 • 1 Comment

One thing I like about London’s Underground. More than one actually, but there’s one thing I like in particular. They allow you to take pictures inside the stations and inside the trains. No signs and no stressed out policemen telling you to stop taking pictures. I guess it’s ok as long as you don’t disturb anybody.

I like the Underground quite a lot. It’s like a city inside the city. There are even different kind of people usually going on the different lines of the Underground. You get in contact with everyone here. From the smiling japanese tourists with their maps dropping out of their camera bags to the tired people that go home from work at 10 PM.Just the other day I saw a guitarist play at Baker Street Station that made Joe Satriani look like a slowhand player… talk about chances in life.

All in all the Underground’s a big, giant fruitcake.

More to come.

Urma – Silver Church

Cu paşi mari se apropie ziua de 9 decembrie, zi care marcheaza doua evenimente importante, gazduite intr-un singur loc. Nu are legatura nici cu alegerile, nu are legatura nici cu Moş Nicolae, ci, după cum v-aţi dat seama din titlul articolului, are legatură cu concertul Urma de la Gala Inspired 2009, ce se va ţine in clubul Silver Church, din Bucureşti.

Pe scurt, 29 octombrie 2009, Silver Church:
