Born in Yugoslavia. Has B.S. in Civil Engineering. Studied History of Art for three semesters. Over time worked as civil engineer, architectural designer, street salesman, graphic designer, and photographer (usually little bit of everything at the same time). Received first camera (an old Altix IV) from his father at age of fourteen. Participated in over 400 photo exhibitions. Had 12 solo exhibitions (first in Nikon Gallery in Vienna). Currently lives in Los Angeles, California, 150 miles from Jumbo Rocks in Joshua Tree. Spends an hour and a half daily driving. Both facts have an important role in his photographic work.
Photography, for me, is an ability (given as a natural talent or acquired through consistent practice) to see things around us, not only to look at. To see relationships between objects, the delicate play of light and shadow, the importance of discrete detail in the overall picture, and the constant change of these relationships over time. Each photo is an absolute personal experience of reality. Each of us has a peculiar result of the “seen”. When such a result is “framed” in our memory, we get the picture. It may not be objectively real but in the end, everyone has their own “reality”. The camera only helps us to reconstruct each image. Few of my best photos, I have “recorded” without a camera. Some of those taken traditional way, registered on film or memory card, are on this site…
