The Fog 4 by AncaCernoschi
The Fog 4
The following is a short photo essay about my 89 year old grandfather’s usual hot summer day in his home in western Romania, where he lived for the last 45 years. I took the first two photos of the series 6 years ago, without thinking about it as a serious project at that time, I was just enjoying the moment. At the end of August 2015 I came back to him as a subject.Once a week, on Monday afternoons, on the sound of his radio that plays loud folk music, he prepares his shaving items on the kitchen table almost like a ceremony.
They are the same for as long as I can remember: a traditional shaving razor and brush, shaving cream made from soap mixed with water in a sour cream plastic cup, a towel and an old newspaper. Except for the mirror, because he doesn’t need it anymore. Over the past years he has gone almost completely blind because he refused to have a surgery that would have partially restored his eyesight.
This whole ritual can take up to one hour as he stops occasionally to react to a noise or listen to some news and discuss it with his wife; then resumes on checking his face meticulously by touch and applying cream and shaving what he has left. After he’s done he puts every item back into the black wooden box that I have always liked and spends some more time in the kitchen or in his bedroom listening to the radio. He never turns on the TV during the day.
Late evenings, after dinner, he is always in his bedroom, listening to the TV next to his wife of 58 years. Hanging on the walls behind them are the framed photos of his children: a son he lost young and my teenage mother.
Listening to the radio during the day and to the TV during the evening and night are his only entertainment. He doesn’t want to go outside of the courtyard anymore. He now suffers from severe depression and panic attacks and describes his condition as being permanently in a heavy fog.

prezentare la brasov by AncaCernoschi

REPREZENTAREA CORPULUI FEMININ – intalnire cu Anca Cernoschi

Photolife si Libraria Okian din Brasov va invita la un nou eveniment din cadrul proiectului Intalnire cu Fotografia. Am avut ocazia pana acum sa ii vedem pe Tatiana Volontir, Luiza Boldeanu, Dorin Bofan, Zoltan Nagy, Vlad Eftenie si Andrei Baciu, asa ca o sa continuam lista cu un nume la fel de interesant ca si cele de pana acum, Anca Cernoschi. Este aproape primavara si urmeaza zilele de inceput de martie, asa ca nu exista un moment mai bun decat sa aducem un elogiu fotografic corpului feminin. Anca este preocupata de acest subiect si studiaza formele, lumina si conceptele care sa poată reda cat mai creativ nudul in viziunea ei artistica.

Aceasta este cea de a opta intalnire a proiectului nostru pe care ni l-am propus pentru un an de zile. Prin aceste intalniri o sa aveti ocazia sa cunoasteti diversi fotografi, o sa puteti sa discutati despre anumite genuri fotografice sau despre anumite tematici interesante, o sa puteti face schimburi de idei, initia proiecte si, nu in ultimul rand, o sa va puteti face prieteni noi care impart aceeasi pasiune cu voi. Gazda fiecarei intalniri fotografice va fi Dan Dinu, care va modera discutiile cu invitatii, va va prezenta idei noi si va va lansa provocari.

Inscrierile la aceste intalniri se fac in baza unei confirmari, locurile in sala fiind limitate. Pentru inscriere si alte informatii puteti folosi florin.ifrim@okian.ro sau numarul de telefon 0728 728 315. Intrarea este libera.

Reprezentarea corpului feminin – invitat Anca Cernoschi, moderator Dan Dinu

Vineri 27 februarie ora 18:30 - Libraria Okian, str. Muresenilor nr. 1

Va asteptam!
