My name is Ion Mates (but everyone calls me Johnny).

I was born in Bucharest, Romania and I am currently studying BA Visual Communication at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design in Birmingham, UK.

I have also been a Photo-Editor for the Romanian magazine Teen Press since August 2011.

I will use this blog to lay out my ideas regarding photography and aspects about usual life seen from a different perspective.

Hope you enjoy 🙂

One thought on “About

  1. If you want to be true to life, start lying about the reality of it. …One cannot describe reality; only give metaphors that indicate it. All human modes of description (photographic, mathematical and the rest, as well as literary) are metaphorical. Even the most precise scientific description of an object or movement is a tissue of metaphors (J. Fowles)
    A visual communicator must invite the viewer to experience the question without providing any answer because any answer is a form of death
