Istanbul - The Timeless City

I visited Turkey several times and my last visit was in May 2008. Each time I spent almost two weeks photographing Istanbul and capturing the life of the timeless city.

The project name is "Istanbul – The Timeless City"

I always wanted to go back to Istanbul and try to capture the essence of this city, something that I liked so much. All those sights and sounds, different people, street trade, thousands of travelers, food scents etc, led me to realize that nothing changed here for decades and probably will not change in near future. Suddenly I felt like there is no time. It could have been 1957 or 1977 right there and then and I would be seeing exactly the same scenery. Maybe that's the most precious thing about this city. This series is my attempt to express what I felt and take the viewer to the journey across the timeless city of Istanbul.

With sponsorship from TIKA and Turkish Ziraat Bank I had the opportunity to exhibit those photographs in May 2008 in the most beautiful gallery space in Sarajevo and that is the Turkish Cultural Centar.

I consider this project the ongoing project and the first phase of discovering Turkey and uncovering the roots of the culture that is very similar to my own.


You can find more information about the project in the catalogue.

 

 

 

 

Biography


I was born in 1973 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, where I live and work as freelance photographer.


For past six years I explore photography and during that time it evolved from pure hobby to work, love, passion and way of life. Beside my daily work and assignments I still wonder around looking for good photograph, with very same passion. Hopefully that feeling will never abandon me.


Professionally I do reportage, documentary, technical and commercial photography which includes various location and studio shooting, with part of the work coming from licensing existing photographs from my archives for various uses of my client and last, but not the least - the sale of my art photography prints. I work with several design and advertising agencies and I try to include maximum creativity, new ideas, knowledge and experience to each and every photograph that I make. Every photograph is a challenge and bigger it is the joy of meeting that challenge is very rewarding. There is no perfect photograph, not the perfect human but it is the very fact that keeps me pushing the boundaries and explore further.


So far I had 8 solo exhibitions and took part in more than 80 collective ones in 14 different countries of the world. The most important award I've got for me was the „Collegium Artisticum 2006“, the annual award for one photographer, member of the Association for Applied Artists and Designers of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ULUPUBiH).

I am a member of:

    * Association for Applied Artists and Designers of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ULUPUBiH)
    * Art Photography Association in Bosnia and Herzegovina (AUFBiH)
    * Photo Group f8
    * Photo Club "Podgorica"
    * Qatar Photographic Society

My photographic distinction is Master Photographer Candidate at Association of Art Photography of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Photographic union) where I have the position of vice-president and FIAP Country Liaison Officer


In the meantime I'm still looking for that perfect photograph...
