"Lo savio mio inver' lui gridò: "Forse tu credi che qui sia 'l duca d'Atene, che sú nel mondo la morte ti porse? Pártiti, bestia, ché questi non vene ammaestrato da la tua sorella, ma vassi per veder la vostre pene." Inferno, Canto XII, lines 16–20 Somewhere, beyond the envisioned world of dreams, the tormented, ugly or deformed character hides a fantastic world of inner beauty revealed through an extremely sensitive approach. The personal vision on interpreting easily distinguishable human emotions, defines the thin boundaries of revealing the hidden human soul.

Alexandru Crisan (b. Bucharest, Romania 1978) is a visual artist specialized in fine art photography. An architect by formal education, his professional career in photography began in 2008 and since then, he has focused on completing and promoting his eclectic art projects. His research on and within photography grasps a unique surreal vision on immateriality, while accentuating different stages of a hyperrealist understanding of reality. Complementary, he accentuates multiple imaginary versions of different worlds that accept contradictory interpretations.
