Five Minutes Portraits (V)

video, 1080p, 05:00 min episodes

Inspired by some Andy Warhol’s works, I invited Romanian public figures whom I had met in my photographic activity, to stand for 5 minutes in front of a video camera, eye-contacting the lens. I prefer to consider these videos more as photographs then films, another kind of "long exposure", or 5 minutes photographic portrait introspections using video tools.

The project contains more than 90 video portraits (September 2015), but is an ongoing work. It was presented to the public in various installations in May 2015 (World Press Photo Bucharest 2015) and in July 2015 (Short’s Up Festival).
