The "Diary" project proposed by Daniela Zbarcea includes a series of photographic collages and photographs that follow a trajectory of their own in search of identity. The images appear like wandering pages in a diary, materialized fragments of time, presences of memory that unfold visually in original representations.Snapshots captured throughout life, photographic self-portraits or details from the intimate space of the workshop, these diary pages follow a short period of time, especially moments from the recent past. The series includes collages, photographic installations, a kind of atypical personal visual album, created chaotically, spontaneously. The concept underlying the "Diary" project sends us to an exercise of reorganization, recontextualization, in a new way, visual moments, mixed, which bring in the present ideas, sensations, past feelings. The images under the name "Moments" are differentiated with certain #hash-tags that help finding clues in their interpretation. This series starts from the photographic archive made with the phone and posted on instagram in recent years, hence the idea of hash-tags in the title of each photo collage. Photographs are chosen randomly, spontaneously, without having a connection as time or the period in which they are taken, they are based on an impulse, an unthinking movement, without being guided by reason, or by self-analysis
