Born in Bucharest, Romania, Mina spent her childhood in theatre, amongst preparing actors, dusty props and costumes, and most summers by the Black sea, capturing the world with her plastic panoramic camera.
Fascinated by movies and cinematography, she frames the world in overexposed imagery that reflects the luminosity of her vision.
About the Coney Island Project
"Browsing through my repository of images, I started to be attracted by a subconscious theme running through the work that was induced by childhood memories of the Black Sea: an archive of nostalgic moments mapping my own displacement in the New World.
Roaming between panoramas and close ups, all the new, the lens of time over exposes the old glam in subconscious dreamscapes."
