Anca Moanta documents the colorful, chaotic youth cultures surrounding the music world. Her kaleidoscopic images capture a gritty brand of beauty as young people dance and booze in a haze of neon light and cigarette smoke. Indeed, Moanta’s lens reveals a hip, underground reality that is entirely candid.
Moanta translates the exuberance of her youthful subjects into bold compositions that utilize long exposures to convey pulsing movement. Dancing figures and strobing lights are captured in hazy blurs and long flashes of color, and double exposures mirror the intoxicating party environment.
