“Nest” by Dan Moga crafts a new perspective on his grandmother’s universe. Finding it limited and monotonous as a child, today the photographer recalls the past with a different lens.

Dan Moga is a contemporary photographer, visual artist, and writer based in Romania. Capturing everyday life and its different perspectives have led him to fulfill his artistic dreams. Through shooting various projects and presenting imagery in interactive ways, Dan has achieved his artistic breakthrough.

Dan’s photo series “Nest” focuses on the relationship he has with his grandmother, Cornelia. In the project, he shows the different perspectives of her life.

Dan found his first camera in his grandmother’s closet. In a tin box, alongside old family photos and letters, his interest awoke.

As a child, he remembers his grandmother’s universe feeling limited and tedious. But by viewing the past through a different lens, Dan was able to recall old memories from a different perspective.

Ever since I found myself holding a camera in my hand, my grandmother Cornelia was always the favorite subject of my photography.
