Dragoș Hanciu was born in 1993 in Orăștie, a small city in Transylvania, Romania. He spent almost half of his life skateboarding and that’s how he got in contact with photo and video cameras: cruising on the streets, skating and shooting everything he saw.
“To me, walking on the same streets every day is always different. Among all the things that are happening, there are certain situations where common things tend to be something else, going beyond what’s normal or real; transcending. I am doing a word play and call it “surreality”.
I like to believe that from a certain point of view, where I am also placing my camera, one may find new layers of a real, concrete image. I am trying to find a new perspective of an absurd urban landscape.”
