I am a landscape photographer, originally from the Republic of Moldova. After my graduation in Psychology, I started working in the Human Resource department for a financial company. At that moment I started to take pictures been inspired by the beauty that the surrounding nature could offer to us; that activity was a great escape from a daily routine. When I came in Key West, my photography journey became more fascinating, as I was surrounded by the ocean and water become mostly present in my photography as the subject, often combined with the human activity elements.
