ABOUT ME

My first attempts in photography date back to 1980 and since then photography has become my way of seeing the world around me. 

I started doing photography in highschool when my friends and I founded FKK DPD Svoboda in Borovnica in 1980.

In the time of analog photography, small darkrooms, smuggled chemicals and photo paper from Italy, in the time of Zenith and Praktica, we were looking for motifs and our creative selves around our homeland. We organized photo exhibitions, participated in competitions and above all… socialized. 

Then our life paths diverged, the camera retreated into the background and became merely a means of recording family events.


Almost forty years have passed. They say you never forget your first one. And in reality, the desire to take photos reawakened in me.

Thus, all the photos published on this page were taken from 2014 onwards.

 

There are many little things around us that we ignore in this consumerism rush. I see this world differently through the lens of a camera, it gives me positive energy.

Photography means passion and joy for me, with it I can stop time and create memories at the same time. It offers me its own view of the world.
