Lucian Bran (b. 1981) lives and works in Bucharest. He graduated the Photography class, MA (2015) and BA (2009), of the National University of Arts, Bucharest. His interdisciplinary approach to landscape photography uses cynicism and sentimentality to subvert the ideological constructions shaping how we see our place within the societal world. His trademarks are self-reflexive photographic series which focus on the medium’s contribution to the material culture of global and local geographical imagination.
