ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE….
Born and raised in former Yugoslavia, the 90’s Balkan war brought my family to Canada. My childhood was a labyrinth of the most peculiar moments and experiences and I hold onto those memories with love. My upbringing has ingrained in me the importance of self-expression, the value of human character and I strive to portray that wherever possible. I am a collage of my experiences and a collection of self-imposed challenges, which is the driving force behind my appreciation of people, culture, and intricacies which make us all so different. I am married to a genuine and goodhearted man and I am most deeply in love with my two children – my family inspires me daily to be a better human being. I am constantly learning and experimenting and I consider change, challenge and failure fundamental to personal growth… Photography is an outlet I am most passionate about – engaging, ever evolving and always challenging my perspective in life.
I am a lover of simplicity yet I consider myself a complex human, I believe there is always room for gestures of kindness, one more black and white photograph or ten or a hundred; old-fashioned romance, poetry and metaphors, getting lost in an unknown place, obscure fragrances, a healthy dose of sarcasm and great shoes.
