About the Book
Temporary Peace is the first book that gathers Madalina Iordache-Levay's fine art photography into a collection showing a spiritual journey through life and through art as well, while discovering, embracing and perfecting a new form of photography. The title is more than the screen name she has used in the online art communities, as it represents both the artist's spirit and that of her work, which often are frozen moments of peace in a frantic reality.
"Viewing Madalina's art is like going through a surreal, enlightening and thoughts provoking journey."
- Steve Chong
"Discovery and invention stimulate innovation and new directions for the 'Arts.' This is particularly true of Fine Art Photography, which has now entered the digital age. The level of innovation and skill of execution encompasses talent and distinguishes the art, as well as the artist. Madalina's surreal mind images are exceptional and exemplary in embracing this change."
- James Schot (James Schot Gallery, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida)
"Catching memorable moments by camera is difficult. Creating such moments with the support of digital imaging is an even bigger task.
As a photographer one needs to know what will happen within the next second to be ready to press the button. Madalina Iordache-Levay as a digital imaging artist has to feel what will happen in her mind and her unconsciousness far beyond photographic reality to create images of undescribable beauty and perpetual meaning".
- Dr. Chris. Hinterobermaier (Chairman Trierenberg SuperCircuit)
Madalina Iordache was born in Romania in 1982. She grew up painting and drawing, and then she betrayed images for words when she went to university to study Journalism. However, she is grateful to that time, as she came to discover photography and digital art. Madalina moved to South Florida in October 2006, where she married Eric Levay, poet and passionate photographer as well. Her surreal and conceptual imagery has been awarded numerous times in prestigious international competitions, has been published in photography magazines and books all over the world, and has been exhibited in galleries from Romania and USA.
