Blackened 2014


These are documents from the present time, of today’s life, of and out of today’s city. They are witnesses to decay and rot, collapse, weariness and annihilation. They tell of an age when living environment is on the verge of wreck and death. Leaked, cracked, fallen, ruined. They tell about what people – absent in photos though their footprints are presented – have done to their environment, their homes, their city and to their civilization as well. 


They are manifestos in frame; bitter, bold, harsh, naturally accusing, at least protesting.

These photos remind us that beside materializing artistic imagination and presenting attractive and innovative images, photography – with photograph as a unique cell in the process of obtaining a truth through a visor and recording the reality- is still a unique, facile, available and precious art form. His photos reveal a world that is still full of discoveries, exposures, protests, warnings as well as containing the great joy of having a view to the surrounding.
