Maybe sometimes the meaning of a photography doesn’t reside in transcending the one thousand words’ border. Not at all, but, exactly on the contrary, a photo may well fulfill its goal by simply suggesting that, be it from time to time, moving closer to the gentle fields of silence represents a higher wisdom.

About Andrei Baciu
There is no border between photography and poetry. Photography is, just like poetry, full of lyrism. Somewhere, high up, they meet, they mix, they mingle. Photogralysm. While an art such as literature seeks, through words, the Word, Photography reveals the light within the Light: this is the premise of my visual expression endeavours. Obsessively fascinated by the power with which the photographical art bears testimony that the world is ”good from the viewpoint of its purpose, beautiful as making, complex from the perspective of its existence and spiritual through its very materiality” (Horia Bernea), I do my best to acknowledge the assertion in the quote above.
I live in Magurele, Prahova county, Romania and I am a Romanian literature teacher, Ph. D. Photography is for me a way to confirm the ineffable beauty and coherence that God bestowed upon the world. I photograph mainly on a 30 kilometer radius in my county, on the hilly surroundings of my natal village, where I keep discovering new photographic subjects, including landscapes, people and horses. I am also co-author of the book ”De ce fotografia?” (”Why photography?”) [Official website]
