My name is Leica and I'm kind of seamless. At first everything is clear: white or black. Of course I like to play with shadows, but I don't like to complicate myself with rainbows, it's a private matter. I work best with 35 millimeters. For me, things are simple: I need good light and a careful eye. Only that damn eye always manages to press my sensitive button in the most intimate moments, when everything around is rainbow and prints it on a piece of paper that it shows everyone.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In April 2021, the group has 5.600 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, setting their texts within the limit of 500 symbols (in Romanian language, so in English the limit might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise with an almost daily changed topic. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
