About me


I was born on 18 th of february 1971 in Ptuj. Interest for photography is with me since early childhood. My father liked photography, and taked photos as well. Every time when we with my parents went to holidays, or on trips somewhere, we take pictures of ourselves, or the places that we have visited. There are also a lot of photographs of ourselfs with brother by different periodes of time in home archive. I became my first photocamera when I was 13 years old. Since then is takin' photos one of my favourest hobbys, or I can even say: it became more than that. It's some kind of obssession. In last 4 or 5 years became photography more seriously for me. The study of sociology of mediums on Philosophic faculty in Ljubljana has driven me to deeper study of the history of photography, techniques, different uses of photography, and also to my first group and solo exhibitions. Till now I have been exhibited mostly in my hometown and in Maribor, Kranj, Mulbourne... Theoretical work of Susan Sonntag, Roland Barthes, Walter Benjamin, Janez Strehovec and others has brought me to a new level of uderstanding of this visual medium. For me the photography is one of the tools of self expression, and nice thing for knowing people and make worldwide conections. It's also a medium for expression of my views on the world as such, my inner self, emotions, thoughs, points of view, and look upon people and society that surrounds me. philosophy of photography is in some sense similar to great master Henri-Cartier Bresson and his 'decisive moment'. I like to photograph concerts the most, but it is very hard to get good results in darken and crowdy places. The experimentation in visual expression has brought me to abstract posibilities of photography and to photography of arhitecture. In the future I would like to learn more about this beautiful piece of art, I also wish to publish more of my photos and articles. I would like to graduate on department for pedagogy of Philosophic Faculty on University in Ljubljana on theme: 'Photography and free time education'. Exhibitions follows:
