Born into a family with a long tradition of icon painting, C. Fodoreanu 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, fleetingness of time, divine intervention, fragility of life, personal boundaries, play and intimacy. These themes are a consequence of his educational background with degrees in philosophy (UCSD) and medicine (Harvard). He is the author of a few poetry books, and several photography projects, including nicula, plants, yellow skies, silent recall, dancers, street smart, green bird, macroskins, and motus corporis.

C. Fodoreanu’s photography has been featured in a number of solo shows, which include the Harvard Arts First and Cornel/Henry Art. His projects have participated in selected photography festivals and publications, such as 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 was selected by the Art San Diego 2019 as one the four Local Talent art visionaries, and chosen by the show judges as the 2019 Award Winner. He is represented by Cornel/Henry Art Photography Gallery from San Diego, CA, USA. His work can be found in private collections throughout United States and Europe. He currently lives in Southern California.

C. Fodoreanu’s latest project lost trees is now available online.

His macroskins project will be on display from 1.17 to 2.16, 2020 at the Cornel/Henry Art in San Diego, CA. His work will also be featured in the upcoming Rotterdam Photo 2020 (2.6-9, 2020) and Art Palm Spring (2.13-17, 2020.)
