Hello, my name is Ilie Bogzoiu. I was born in 1977 by the shores of the Black Sea in Romania, but I have been living in Madrid (Spain) for almost 20 years now.
I always had a thing for Photography, but my real passion started 7 years ago, when I was given my first camera. Ever since, I have always carried a camera with me, and I have kept trying to learn and explore the depths of this wonderful art. I have always been self-taught, and I try to surround myself with people who inspire me and help me to grow.
Photography is a way for me to get away from my worries. I enjoy trying to catch the essence of the things that surround me, or those fleeting moments you can only capture with just one shot.
I am interested in every field and every technique, and I like to dive into each one of them when I have the chance.
I usually work with a CANON 5D MARK II and a set of 3 lenses: 35mm, 50mm, and 70-300mm.
I was lucky to organise two exhibitions in Madrid, and I also took part in one international contest (BLIPOINT FESTIVAL 2019) winning the first prize in the Black&White category.
When I was included in the TOP-5 of Agora’s #BestOfTheWeek22 I felt very excited and filled with emotion, for it is a portrait of my grandmother, therefore of my roots, which I am very fond of and inspire me so much.
I want to thank Agora and its wonderful Team for the great job they are doing and for giving people like me the opportunity to show our work to the world. I am very proud to be a member of this community. Thank you all for your support!
Here are some sites where you can find me:
My best wishes to you all.
