About the

Photographer

Hi!

I’m from Slovenia, a small and beautiful country in the heart of Europe. I became interested in photography in 2012 during my studies at the Medical faculty in Ljubljana and so my first major photographic project was connected to a humanitarian-medical expedition to Madagascar in 2013. I took my Nikon D5100 everywhere with me, but it turned out I was a little to enthusiastic and somehow managed to destroy the camera a month before our departure home. Later that year I began to photograph weddings and in 2014 I joined a group of photographers doing the 365 project. It was tough, but I learned a lot.

In 2015 I found myself in a team of volunteers going to Bolivia. This time around I didn’t break my camera. In fact, I came home with both cameras, one digital and also a film camera (F100). Whilst on the airplane, I watched a documentary about Sebastiao Salgado – The Salt of the Earth – and totally fell under the spell of black and white photography. Now I’m developing B&W film rolls in my apartment. At the end of the year I went with my girlfriend to Turkey and took with me only a bunch of Kodak Ektar and Ilford Delta rolls. I left my D750 at home and I think it was the right thing to do. I like new challenges.

So, there you have it. I like both the digital and analog technologies and I love to travel and learn about different cultures. To learn about and to accept all the kinds of different people is to become a better person.

I’m on a journey through life. Travel with me.
