Cosmin Munteanu - Humanless

Cosmin Munteanu – Humanless

“As mentioned in my very short “photo” portrait, nowadays, while the scene remains untouchable, in some photographs the humans simply don’t exist, literally. But that’s just a first impression. Even if humans are not present in flesh and blood, the frames are about them and are telling their story. Like in more classical street photographs, besides the moment itself, a note of humor, irony, sadness can be added in these street “still life” shots. While the photographs are added in a series I called “Humanless” well, the humans are more present in them I suppose than in a directed photo. With this series of photos I somehow returned to the beginnings of my photographic journey when almost anything was good to be immortalized on the film or sensor. The subjects are closer than you would think. One have just to look and see.” – Cosmin Munteanu

“This year I’ll be eight years old in what photography concerns. As any novice I suppose, at first almost anything was a potential subject. As time was passing by, after many films rolled through my cameras and after watching many photographs made by others (photographers) I stopped to what I like most. And that is to catch the flying moment in a frame, a sort of time catcher . Street photography seemed the most close to what I was looking for and today I stick with it and its principles so that keeping the moment unaltered. In the same way I try to do my job as an event photographer besides my main job as accountant.”
