About Florin Ion Firimitã

Born in Romania, now living in the United States, he is a visual artist, educator, filmmaker, and novelist. He took his first photograph at the age of three using a Soviet made Zenith camera. After his parents' death, he continued to study painting and drawing and kept taking photographs while holding jobs such as welder, grave digger, janitor, window decorator, and security guard. The Art of Leaving, a film about his art, was the official selection of seven international film festivals. Most recently, Florin’s works have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art / Grand Palais in Paris. This past July he had the great honor to be invited by the Rodin Museum to create a body of work inspired by the work of Camille Claudel and Auguste Rodin. The museum has acquired ten of his photographs for their permanent collection. His photography is represented by the GADCOLLECTION Gallery in the City of Light.
