The invisible man by Marius Surleac

The invisible man was selected and published in our print edition 22. Unexpressed emotions, hidden from the eye of the crowd, waiting to be found, like a gold nugget in the mud, sitting, unattended but pulsing, pumping every second until someone could sense that vibe.

Unexpressed emotions, hidden from the eye of the crowd, waiting to be found, like a gold nugget in the mud, sitting, unattended but pulsing, pumping every second until someone could sense that vibe.

Solitude right there, like a smooth sound wave in an ocean of noise, one step away to vanish, one step closer to be noticed, serene … as the movement of leaves on sidewalks in the autumn. How many times we venture the streets diving in our own thoughts, floating away in our own vast universe that only the universe itself could fit into.

His/Her dream becomes mine as I try to imagine, looking into one’s self from a distance, carefully watching every gesture which soon will fly away like a thought. Everyone’s pain, everyone’s belief will be shared with the others at a certain moment, if there will be eyes to see it. Maybe each one of us will be someone’s subject and may we share the same thoughts with the others.

These photos are just mere observations, reflections within parallel worlds intersecting in various circumstances. These examples are about us, about our solitudes in an agitated world, in which the personal time turns into tiny frames, short flashes of reflection, loose identity, blurred, gloomy.

The geometries around these subjects are the guiding lines to enhance, to isolate, to make it obvious, gaussian distributions between young and old, women and men, individual and crowd, etc.

Seeing all this through the lens could make one happy, could trigger new emotions, could change people; at least this does for me. Being unobtrusive allows you to get closer to the raw nature of people, to blend in, to see them as natural as possible, to taste the candidness of the moment. The minimalism, the simplicity of the constitutive elements, the movement of the stillness, all play their roles and enhance everything – and then, who knows, maybe someone will stop and stare at the frames and find that solitude whispering, breaking all the silence.
