'dancers' by C. Fodoreanu

© 2021 Cornel/Henry Art

The Cornel/Henry Art is pleased to present 'dancers' by C. Fodoreanu, a San Diego based photographer and physician. 


C. Fodoreanu, MD from Harvard Medical School, was born into a family with a long tradition of icon painting, and started painting from early ages. He received his first camera as a young boy and ever since then he has been using light and time to paint his photographs. His work touches on human condition, the fleeting time, divine intervention, the fragility of life, personal boundaries, play and intimacy. These themes are a consequence of his educational background with degrees in philosophy and medicine. He is the author of a few poetry books, and his photography has been featured in several solo shows, which include the Harvard Arts First, and the Cornel/Henry Art. His projects have participated in selected photography festivals and publications, including Palm Springs Photo Festival, Medium Photo Festival, the Harvard Medical School literary magazine Third Space, and The Human Condition of UCSD School of Medicine. C. Fodoreanu has been selected by the Art San Diego 2019 as one of the four Local Talent art visionaries, and chosen by the show judges as the 2019 Award Winner. His work can be found in private collections throughout the US and Europe.

'I was traveling to Greece and stumbled upon an old waterpark. The place was full of smiles and playful energy. Kids and adults alike were laughing and throwing themselves in the water making splashes. But at the same time there was this allusive seriousness about their play in the water. The more time passed and more water was splashed from above, a hidden sternness and a godly gravity spread throughout. The place made for an unexpected comparison between humans and dancers. With every splash it seemed that humans, with their habitual curious nature, were slowly transformed into rehearsed dancers of a long known and perfectly organized choreography. Their trustful play in dangerous waters seemed driven by a mysterious music and force. A diversion was unveiling itself in front of me, a complete abandonment of these dancers to the powers up above...' - C. Fodoreanu
