Cristiana Apostol (30) is a Romanian Bucharest-based photographer, cinematographer and illustrator whose main area of expertise is underwater photography.
She started shooting under water back in 2009, and since then her technique evolved with “passion and stubbornness”, turning the usual underwater photography in almost painting-like works of art. She recently participated with an exhibition at Sequences (ro: „Secvențe”) photography festival and some of her works have been also projected at See Me Takeover (Times Square, New York).
Cristiana’s project, Weightless Reality, is a series of photographs alternating between fluid, harmonious feminine silhouettes with fantasy subjects and slow-motion atmospheres. She approaches both color and black & white photography in such a manner that both of them have the same effect on the viewer: the inevitable state of calm. Browsing through her portfolio you can easily lose yourself in a profound lucid dream where the water’s depth overlays the outer space dimension.
In the making process, the artist collaborated with Romanian models like Nora Dincă, Irina Ștefan, Silvana Mihai, Ana-Maria Fulga, Diana Franțuz, Cătălina Chiciuc, Ily Pop, Corina Andrian. The team includes: Florian-Titus Ardelean, Irina Apostol, Adriana Melnic, Silvia Nancu, Radu Draghici, Andreea Moldoveanu.
