connections

As said before, it is time for a new project. A new series. Though it will be an additional project as the previous one (”seconds”) will be never ending.

I’ve been thinking recently a lot of it, as I want it to be special, at least to me, and it should last (again) quite long. Finally, the last month it got some shape, it got a name, it got a subject and I’m slowly ready to start.

The project will be called ”connections” as it will be all about the connections we have, but even more, who is our dearest connection? 

The idea is simple: I will photograph one person. This person will tell me which is her/his dearest connection (s)he’d like to have a portrait of. Than, I’ll photograph that person, and that person will tell me which is her/his dearest connection… and so on, and so on. (however, there will be limits to the connection, their should be a common link: f.e., with the Dance Connection, the connections should have all to do with dance).


The first series within the project will be The Dance Connection, and I sincerely hope that with this project I’ll be able to make a rather complete portrait of the Croatian Dance Scene. Opening portrait of the series will be with one of HNK’s finest first ballerina’s, Miruna Miciu. The latest portrait is from Guilherme Alves.


The second series within the project will be The Contemporary Connection, a serie about the ZPC. Opening portrait of the series will be with the program director, Martina Nevistic. The latest portrait is from Vanesa Petrac.


Though other series are still getting shaped, following I have in mind: the Bikers Connection and the Running Connection, but all these are for late spring …
