Allegria is not a book about nudes, architecture, landscapes or flowers. Allegria is a book about the way of human perception of usual images. Images that are ignored almost all the time because we forgot to be happy for every beautiful moment of our lives.
Allegria is a collection of instagrams. Behind the small size and the psychedelic colors of the instagrams is the same eye of the photographer that respect all the basic rules of visual arts. The result it is a concentrated composition.
Photographer as vocation, portraitist by passion, Ioan Nicolae's artistic motto is Gnothi seauton! (latin: Nosce te ipsum!, english: Know thyself!) Over time Ioan Nicolae approached various photographic themes but his favorites are the portrait and the landscape photography.
