Mirabilia Images : a very sensual sweet world, warm and delicate colors at the same time, portraits made of dreams or dreams portrayed, visions to share and to savour like a sensuous perfume carrying along the senses and lasting for hours.
Poetry... It was my first word when I've discovered the artworks of Mirabilia Images :
" The goal is to leave the viewer enchanted, amazed, moved, drawn by our photographs."
Some years ago, Luciano Marino et Mira Nedyalkov, two experienced artists, have decided to work together on a common project called Mirabilia Images. The success was immediate.
This inspired cooperation is based on a master word, emotion, as you feel it in each of their so personal compositions, often simple and minimalist in dark shadowed B/W, but softer and delicate in "romantic" colors...
Their consuming inventiveness is always full of sense :
" Mirabilia Images tells stories that raise questions ; stories that enable us to grasp the mysteriousness of the unrest surrounding us in our “reality”. Our message tells of the “realities” which everyone presents by themselves."
Disregarding conventions and out of fashion, their innovative work is a lesson in harmony and grace I couldn't miss.
As I couldn't end this article without to thank Luciano and Mira for their wonderful generosity and their spontaneous trust.
"Don't move II"
" The Mirabilia Images project is the fruit of the passion for photography of Luciano, a 42-year-old Italian, and the talent of Mira, a 36-year-old Bulgarian, an artist and a model.
The project starts with the website Mirabilia Images, which within a year of its creation and without any advertisement whatsoever reached 200 000 views.
The aim of the Mirabilia Images project is to show beauty captured in its momentary manifestations and female beauty in particular as an archetype of beauty, as a metaphor of all that which reality conceals and photography reveals.
"Bitter Moon II"
"To lose myself"
Beauty felt as a metaphor, a moment, a revelation, but also as a provocation, a point of departure and a deeper interpretation of the world around us.
The photography of Mirabilia Images presents reality in a more sensuous and expressive way.
The term “presents” describes quite accurately the function which the means of expression performs : reality is only considered a point of departure for the exploration journey into new worlds and countless possibilities.
Being emotionally bound, the photography of Mirabilia Images peers into the soul, seeking to bring out all those hidden emotions, which become visible only by the capabilities (and restrictions) of the photographic medium.
In this respect, it is precisely emotion that binds the realized projects of Mirabilia Images together.
The goal is to leave the viewer enchanted, amazed, moved, drawn by our photographs. What we want is not an impartial eye, but an appraising one. The message is emotional because it strives to stir emotion. Any kind of emotion, as long as it is there.
Mirabilia Images tells stories that raise questions ; stories that enable us to grasp the mysteriousness of the unrest surrounding us in our “reality”. Our message tells of the “realities” which everyone presents by themselves.
In short, with the help of emotions, Mirabilia Images tells of the fragments of reality, which every one of us carries inside."
