As a child in Moldova, everywhere Vlada went she took stills with an imaginary camera. Vlada would take snapshots of the moment. “Snap! Chik!” As an adult, she reminds herself and the viewer to pause. To revel in the sacredness of the present. An image can center us, reminding us of the miracle of life. She invites you to join her on this journey.
