Awe-Inspiring Black and White Images
Mihai Florea is a fine art photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. He specializes in monochrome, long exposure, architectural and landscape photography.
He generally prefers monochrome photography because it helps him focus on the essential compositional elements and, therefore, the ultimate message behind an image. He is fascinated with the concept of the real and how people perceive objects and reality. The simplest objects can inspire him and he loves experimenting with lighting to create different atmospheres and moods. He loves how photography, unlike other visual arts, is eternally bound to reality at an intimate level.
According to Mihai, “Photography is a spiritual act, an inner conviction and a desire to abstract essence beyond the material world. I think photography is more than just technically perfect rendering, it’s the ability to show emotion and tell a story through composition and lighting.”
