Creative – with one eye poked out
Documentary photography has turned from the real world to the every person’s different truth. Some photographers nowadays are willing to poke one eye out, to explore how you can see the world without it... I am purposely over exaggerating, of course. But, can you see that the concept of a photographic series as your own limitation, which actually helps you? That is what I am talking about,...
Thoughts on "A fictive story" experiment!
From the first moment I signed into the flicker account, I realised it is a useful tool. I would define myself as a lazy kind of photographer, shooting only about 50 to 70 rolls of film yearly. Since you can spend an awful lot of time, energy and money I find photography hard to do. But I still love it. What’s the point? So many great vernacular photos have already been made and for that...

Untitled, no. 1 (observations on contemporary...
The importance of resolving the value of photography seems very vague in my perspective. The era of modern capitalism with its direct evocation, with its desire to encompass within the human, its needs to fulfill and accomplish the pursuit of his ideals appears very different from the way it puts it out. When we try to take a photography with our camera, we seek the unseekable, we try to make it...
William Christenberry - Working from memory (some...
I just returned from Berlin, Mecca of photographic books and photography in general. I was in many stores with used photo equipment, films, books and other stuff. Prices are much lower there, so I was especially attentive for the books. I found William Christenberry’s Working from memory in a book store near Alexanderplatz and it costed only 14 euros, since it was discounted for some reason. It...
Pozdrav iz bivše Nemške demokratične republike!
Ker sem še vedno v Berlinu, vas želim počastit z zelo posebnimi razglednicami. Fotograf Simon Manner jih je zbral v serijo Images from the STASI archives. Nemški vohuni so se res potrudili pri fotkanju, neverjetne barve, občutek nadzora. Uživajte.foto: Stasi

V Berlinu sem včeraj obiskal knjigarno 25books, posvečeno fotoknjigam. Lokal vodi fotograf Hannes Wender, ki skrbi za mesečni izbor 25 najboljših knjih iz celega sveta. Izjemno kvalitetno založena knjigarna se nahaja na Brunnen str., cene so zmerne, v njej se zlahka najdejo podpisane kopije. Hannes knjige pošilja po celem svetu, zato je to pravi naslov, če imate kakšno spečifično željo. ...
