Current Exhibition at Leonardo Gallery:

Between Memory and History


I am a traditional Black and White photographer. Discovery of the wonders of traditional photography started for me some 15 years ago in my hometown of Sarajevo. Since then excitement and anticipation while waiting for a photograph to develop never ceased to be my favourite pleasure.



For me photography is a way of self-reflection and discovery. I start with an idea and simple message, but as I shoot, it develops and grows in sometimes unexpected directions. “My magical days” started as a simple series of environmental portraits. I just wanted to capture those cute, little children’s faces, but ended up with so much more.
