Ususret novoj zbirci poezije

U razdoblju od 19. travnja do 18. rujna ove godine nastajala je moja četvrta po redu zbirka poezije. 99 pjesama, koje će biti predstavljene vrlo simboličnim nazivom, pisane su kao pjesme u prozi koje obično sadržavaju 5 do 7 rečenica. Ova je zbirka po nečemu vrlo jedinstvena — svaka od pjesama zvuči poput uvodnih riječi jednog od 99 poglavlja i kao da im ne pristaje stojati odvojeno jedna od druge, da tako dovoljno kažu: nužda je sagledati ih u sklopu cjeline. Pjesme, pročitane od početka do kraja, pripovijedaju priču — ili 99 momenata te priče. Bio je zadatak izdvojiti tek neke momente da po sebi dovoljno poruče.

Uljane se boje rasule po mojoj koži. Gledala sam kako se slijevaju, a sada me muči vremena gubitak – teško ih je bilo sprati! Oduševljena tim novim, nečuvenim događajem, nisam ga poželjela obustaviti u začetku. Tako čovjek podnosi i laži: dok se oduševljava iluzijama, ne misli na vrijeme koje će mu trebati da ih spere sa sebe. Iluzije su uljane boje koje su lijepe samo dok se slijevaju.

Haute couture – what the dream is about

There is something so gently awakening in my heart just by mentioning “haute couture”. The fashion because of the fashion itself is the purest form of it – and, somewhat, became my dream. The very first thought I will have on my mind is Dior – as the French origin of the surname combines Dieu (it stands for God) and or (it stands for gold) – and the golden decade of his creativity. I am ever so inspired just by looking at such beautiful forms, and what I love the most is the consistent process of making it real. It beginns with a simple idea (the idea of a dress). The idea is being shown by the drawn lines (illustration). It goes to to the fields of matematics for its specification (pattern making), takes the advantage of the technology for its construction (being sewn) and, by using the uniquess of the handicraft, becomes purified (the final touch). Depending on the idea, that could take the hundreds of hours – but how to show the appreciation towards the knowledge and the time it takes but being taken by its beauty?

In this chapter I will present the bridal piece I recently created – oh, haute couture was never closer to me!

Urban style photoshoot

It has been more than three months since my friend and I saw each other the last time. When we met, the first thing we did was sharing all the great news from our lives, where did we go and what we saw. My friend is very cheerful  and he can make anyone laugh. I am more serious though, but I found myself being very silly when we’re together. We are friends since 2004 so that sense of silliness comes naturally  and it is so enjoyable.

Since that last meeting, a very great thing happened to my photography I put an effort in learning Lightroom and that is one of the best things that could ever happen to my photography actually, so good that I questioned myself how could I possibly even start shooting without knowing it first?! If there is any piece of advice I could give on this field, it would be: shoot Raw from the beginning and learn Lightroom!
