Looking for funds for this awesomeness.
/// PEOPLE IN CAPITAL LETTERS
I truly have no name for this project. Yet. Sometimes I meet interesting people and just offer/ask them for a session at their home or places, where they create. It’s an intimate project, where everything is meant to be natural. With their permission, I visit their living spaces, we have some beer and I shoot them the way I feel them. No guidelines there. Not everybody agrees. It’s a slow process with one shooting happening once in a half a year. Both sides have to be comfortable enough with the idea, possibility of no results and sometimes, that commerce is not involved and it’s just for history.
/// STREET PHOTOGRAPHY
Essentially everything comes from this. It’s the thing that started million years ago and will never end. I have always a camera with me and this is never ending work. I do try to create something more than just capturing street life – human being is always the main part of the story. A Photograph, that need an explanation, is not a good one. I hate captions for street photograph. And if someone asks you, which looks better – color or black/white – tell them to delete the image and move on.
/// KAFIJA UN MAFIJA
That’s the band I am working really close together. When they talk about music, I speak less, when about the imaginery – they do. They came up to me after my exhibition a few years back [was it 2013?] and wanted to do a shoot for their album. It went well and through the process we became good friends who thinK along . Now we are working on the next album. It’s conceptual and dark, and damn thought through, as the lyrics and sound. The integral part of the planning a shoot is listening into the piece, figuring out the signs, what will work and what’s too much. Fun and responsible work.
/// EXHIBITIONS AND PUBLICATIONS
I do have them in both worlds: photography and retouching.
I find all those long
[or not so long]
lists pretentious, thus you’ll have to ask for one of mine.
