Born in Bucharest, Romania, Mina spent her childhood in theatre, amongst preparing actors, dusty props and costumes, and most summers by the Black sea, capturing the world with her plastic panoramic camera.
Fascinated by movies and cinematography, she frames the world in overexposed imagery that reflects the luminosity of her vision.
Since her move to NYC, she fell irreversibly in love with Coney Island, a subject that has been the center of her work for the past 7 years. Mina Teslaru lives in New York City and works from her studio in Williamsburg - Brooklyn.
