Our “Inspiration Feeder” presents to you short interviews with interesting visual artists from around the globe. Today in focus: Daniel Munteanu.
Where do you come from?
Sometimes I feel… as if from another world, another time or dimension, no joke intended, I say this will all seriousness, who knows where I or some part of me, has lived before. I feel no particular connection to my place of birth, besides the nature of those home places and the language we speak…. but I have always felt to be a citizen of planet Earth. So that is my answer.
What do you think gives you your unique view of the world?
Perhaps because all my life I was on a kind of quest, in search of mysteries, trying to understand the world and myself as well. Or maybe it’s because of my doubting mind or my dreams that reach too high for my own good or maybe because I have always experimented with what I do.
What do you prefer project based approach or single shots following wider topic?
Project base. Always have, always will. It’s more challenging and also gives a sense of purpose. You can build a whole world or style around a project, go deeper, try harder, grow it like an organism.
How long do you think it took you to find your personal style of shooting?
I might say I use more than one style in my photography. There’s my past studio work and my latest ICM to the next level works. For the former 3-4 years, for the latter, about 7 years of learning and trying.
What would you say is the thing that most inspires you? / What keeps you going?
Life is too short… that puts a booster under my feet. Also, I see many artists doing great things, that inspires me as well and tells me I haven’t finished my journey yet. My wife and my family give me a reason to fight. Music, books, spirituality. The sense of adventure, all of these do.
