591 Exhibition - Ioana Moldovan

The exhibition has ended
Ioana Moldovan is an intelligent, sensitive photographer. Her exhibition makes me think of a quote by Robert Frank: "Above all, I know that life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference. Opinion often consists of a kind of criticism. But criticism can come out of love." The criticism I find in Ioanas work is about the living conditions of the people she has met in these photographs. She wrote to me: "It is about wonderful people living in not so wonderful places."
In many of Ioana's photos I have noticed her seeing and experiencing the world through the eyes of the person she portrays. There is a sequence that exemplifies this in the exhibition. Watch the boy looking down at a backyard - in that case there is even somebody looking back from below. It is a very advanced way of seeing that Ioana presents to us. - Mr Urbano
