I’m Marius Surleac. I was born in Vaslui and now I live in Bucharest.
I am a physicist & also a poet. Believe it or not, for me, both of them go hand in hand. Much later I started taking photos with my phone & in 2015 I switched on a DSLR camera, and then to the mirrorless systems. I could say that all my passions complete each other, and I continue to study and perfect them.
I like experimenting, in poetry & photography as well, each one having its own message that could be perceived differently from one individual to another.
Hopefully you will enjoy what you may find on this webpage and, more than that, I’m keen on collaborations.
