My name is Ion Donica. I was born in Chisinau, Moldova. I graduated high school "Ciprian Porumbescu" as a drummer. After 12 years of music I went to the Academy of Music, Theater and Fine arts, specialty film directing and editing.
In this four years of education, three of them were about photography. At the moment I do my master degree in animation. Most of the time I shoot with Kodak film. I use different medium format cameras, 6x6 and 6x7. Also 33mm camera.
For me photography is a way to materialize the emotions and feelings.
