Eliza Tsitsimeaua-Badoiu is an awarded iPhoneographer based on the shore of the Black Sea coast in Constanta, Romania. This is a short, quick presentation on her artistic attempts in the field of mobile phone photography.

I have always been tuned to the power of images and the actual semiotics they display to the viewer, I think this is simply fascinating. Through my images I am trying to create a certain introspectively- feminine mood, closely connected to the female psyche, therefore I base all of my photographic expressions relying on intuition, feelings and inner experience, all of it enclosed in the self-portraiture mode. 

While dealing only with self-portraits, I am attracted by the technique of self-distortion, playing around the almost infinite possibilities of the initial shot and the structuralism of the ego, which can achieve multiple perspectives inside the very frame, through the process of editing. “Consciousness” is often being brought to light in its attempt to finding an identity of her own, by better defying the space, in which female psyche tries to define itself by coexisting reality.

Self-portraiture is for me a means of not only expressing inner fragility that a random moment may bring, but also the imagistic externalization of the emotion itself. 

Eliza Tsitsimeaua-Badoiu | Self-portraits

With this entry of entirely self-portraits I wanted to define once again the space that the random gestures can articulate into the frame of female psyche. It is a mixture of monochromatic feelings where the suspended framed time is in between continuous flow and frozen statics. Through my images I am trying to create a certain introspectively – feminine mood, closely connected to the female psyche, therefore I base all of my photographic expressions relying on intuition, feelings and inner experience, all of it enclosed in the self-portraiture mode. 

Each frame brings us closer to the infinite possibilities of interpreting and translating the subterranean where the blur of the emotion appears -barely traced- in the becoming a memory of the mind itself, into what initially was the basic concept of a ‘selfie’.

Furthermore, inspiration to me has deep roots connecting to some literary concepts as a former Foreign Languages Student, with a degree in Italian Literature, during university years. I’d like to think of some of my images as a reinterpretation of Virginia’s Woolf ‘stream of consciousness’ technique, the madly introspective almost oneiric symbolisms hidden beneath the lines of Edgar Allen Poe. The most frequent concept that transparences inside the poetics of my frames is the clash between ‘appearance’ vs. ‘essence’, consisting in creating the form that lacks its proper definition , as it can be infinitely interpreted by the viewer, going beneath and beyond the very frame. 

Photography through the amazing art of Iphoneography is my very way of reshaping reality, interpreting it and evolving towards the change for the better within ourselves. All of my daily failures, lost or untold words, the very repressed emotions are translated and articulated through the act of each and every created image.
