Mihai Mangiulea Statement

Artist Statement
It is difficult for me to say how much outside influence is in my work and why I am photographing this space or that one; it's maybe easier to say what is coming from inside.

I am searching to encounter an interior image that seems to me being anticipated or approximated by reality, reality that acts like a medium. I feel that the way to this image is there, in front of me, like a dissimulated presence.

My work on a photograph ends only when I recognize the image that seemed, in the beginning, to be obscured by the real. It is strange to recognize something that hasn't been seen yet; in fact, there is a moment when my work ends because the image has become itself, equal to what I feel I must see. It is the certitude that that image can't be otherwise.
