I took this picture in the winter of 2021 in Bucharest, Romania. It is a part of the "As I Found It" series, a collection of "street photography" images I made on the occasion of my travels.
Even though I'm a portrait photographer and most of my work is happening in a studio or other controlled set or location, I love all the forms in which photography is developing. "Street Photography" is one of the domains I'm fascinated with, loving that it is the opposite of what I usually do. I like that I control nothing besides my capacity to see, understand, and act fast enough. Taking photographs on the street, documenting this incredible spectacle of life as it is, I find it one of the most elevated forms of photography.
Original photography means a limited edition print issued, signed, and numbered by the author, accompanied by a specific authenticity certificate. This certificate is similar to a contract, proving that the art object is made under the careful author's attention, in which he assumes his statement regarding the print quality and quantity. An authenticity certificate is essential, it has legal implications as any contract, and it brings value to the art object.
Limited edition photographic prints are maybe the most cost-effective way to decorate your home or office interior with original art. You'll know that you have bought a rare piece of art, an object specially made for you and for which you have the full ownership (as for a painting, for example). With a bit of luck, as in other art fields, buying limited edition photography may be a profitable investment, as the print's market value will rise along with the career of the author.
