Traian is grateful for having the chance to follow his passion for images, all the way to, what today is his profession. Through ambition and determination he has transformed a simple play into something more, a career. In the course of this, he has given up on his childhood dreams of first becoming a priest and later a football player. He doesn’t feel the need to add anything to his ideal world, rather he would simplify it by taking out all the needless stuff. He is captured by Tarkovsky’s movies that seam to communicate with him a higher universal message and by Simon Pasini’s paintings, which create atmospheres through which the human presence and the surroundings become one.

Tudor’s inner-world has no borders and no religion.

Until then, he is touched by the grim reality of Ed Burtynsky’s photographs.
