Cezar Gabriel

Cezar is a chief engineer and a photographer, whose work has won international distinctions including the Excellence from Romanian Association of Photographic Art, Genius from Agile Photographic Society of Bangladesh and Qualified from Photographic Society of America. He said, ‘my relationship with the sea started about 21 years ago, and for the first 10 I collected only memories. And then I discovered photography, and my life changed. At home or at sea, the camera became a part of me, my eyes, my voice.’

Peter Iain Campbell

For the last two years, he has continued to explore the changing nature of the offshore oil and gas industry by documenting the remaining production platforms and drillings rigs throughout the Scottish sector.
