    These are wonderful. What a perceptive eye you have. Thank you for creating and sharing this collection of work.

    this had me laughing with joy all the way through. the casual observer might not realize how you carefully processed each photo to tease out the synchronicity.

    even as a jaded audience for “museum photos” you won me over.

    and yes, to end with a self portrait where you play the same “joke” on yourself, is a magnificent coup de grace

  3. Mariuca, I find these relationships fascinating. The matching patterns and colors are particularly appealing.

    Somebody wakes up, gets dressed, and heads to the museum. Walking through the gallery, something catches their eye so they stop for a longer look. Was it their outfit, mannerisms, or a personal characteristic that made them pause? Had they seen this painting before? Is a copy hanging on the wall next to their bedroom closet? Maybe it’s in a book, next to a clothing catalogue, on their coffee table? The possibilities are endless so we’ll chalk one up for serendipity. For the keen eye, they are unwitting actors in a story about to be told. The results are irresistible so you join the cast by making cameo appearance.

    Excellent series! I hope you continue to capture these brief encounters. HCB said something like “life is fluid, life is once forever.”

    Visually arresting, artful and cleverly wrought! The photographs disarm what you initially think you see, only to reveal something altogether deeper.

    Mariuca, these photographs, as always, are visual art combined with wondrous narrative: they are beautiful, insightful, humane, charming, funny, unique, and a lovely treat for the viewer. Thank you for this series.

    I have shared this post with my closest family who have all agreed that it’s exceptional. Keep them coming. We will enjoy the exhibits again and again through your spontaneous and clever eye! Thanks.
