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.
