I'm photography artist based in Hobart, Tasmania. In 2014 I moved to Hobart from Queensland where I lived for almost two decades. But, I grew up in Zadar, small Croatian seaside town on Dalmatian coast. Those early years of living near the blue Adriatic gave me strong foundations and have considerably shaped my world views. I studied chemistry at the University of Zagreb and have worked as a chemical engineer. I emigrated to Australia in the early nineties.
In 2004, on friends suggestion I purchased my first digital camera and discovered meaning of creativity trough the exploration and nature photography. Looking at the world through the lens has thought me of importance to slow down and taking the time to arrive at carefully considered thoughts, ideas about the world in front of me.
My love of Nature is main reason why I photograph. Infinitive landscape forms and endless ways in which nature reveals itself to us, never stops to surprise me. Nature motivates and encourages me to keep asking the questions. My utmost goal is becoming the better photographer. Finding the answers to the right questions, helps me to continue learning how to see and ultimately supports my growth as a photography artist.
Black and White photography has always attracted me, however my focus on Infrared photography coincides with my recent move to Tasmania. I am intrigued about infrared’s capacity to thrust the viewer further away from the objective reality we are accustomed to, into the another world where lack of colour doesn't matter and where tone and contrast challenge our visual system.
Today I exclusively create fine art black & white photographs, created by infrared converted black and white DSLR cameras. This website captures snapshot of my Black & White work from the beginning of 2018 to this day (2019).
