Bogdan ANDA (R)
Leicester / Thorpe Astley, United Kingdom
• Born in Transylvania, Romania • Currently lives and works in London and Leicester, UK • Bogdan sees himself as an art-photographer, even though he gets tempted now and then by other complementary media too. • He is very interested in the meaningful, he thinks, relationship existing between photography/art and science/spirituality/re-legion. • He sees photography as a sui generis "ready-made" type of art, where collection happens on a sensor rather than physically. • His recent work consists in shooting prosaic, recognizable forms and circumstances brought to his attention and interest by a combination of what is usually considered "pure chance" and his personal elusive subconscious tendencies. • Bogdan prefers these "recognizable forms and circumstances" to be the result of "random-non-human" or "unintentional-human" activities.
