The artist

Born in 1982 in Bucharest, Mina Teslaru is a self-taught Romanian photographer based in New York. Her childhood was steeped in the theatre, alongside talented actors, outrageous accessories and dusty old costumes. Her summers in Romania were punctuated by strolls along the banks of the Black Sea, with a plastic camera in hand. It was upon her arrival in New York in 2007 at the age of 24 that she fell under the charm of Coney Island, the main subject of her images. Many publications now pay tribute to her artistic work, which is not limited solely to the photographic medium; Mina Teslaru also produces light installations. Since 2010, she has participated in collective exhibitions in the states of New York and California. Her dreamlike images have only very recently been discovered in Europe, since Le Bon Marché in Paris dedicated an exhibition to her in 2015.  ... See more See less

About the artwork

An eternal fan of Coney Island, photographer Mina Teslaru never tires of playing with light and colour to transform this famous Brooklyn neighbourhood into dreamlike landscapes. Reaching the peak of its popularity in the early 20th century, and starting its decline after World War II, this former island that is now a peninsula has been revitalised with the opening of a number of amusement parks. The "new Luna Park" in particular, which opened its doors in 2010 and whose mysterious charm Mina Teslaru has persisted in capturing for the past decade. She manages to reveal the timeless, magical quality of the fairground rides through overexposure and the use of old-fashioned colours. The sea is intensified through her lens; the golden sand shines and the crowds amass like small colourful dots. An air of happiness very naturally pervades her images, surrounding the melancholy that governs them.
