Day two was a bit slower for me and I had much time for talking with my friends photographers, made many new contacts. Weather was perfect and the official program was interesting. Make sure you have read my first report!
There are no Boundaries, or? (Lecture and Workshop), by Bruna Kazinoti
Very interesting lecture by Bruna was actually a presentation that gives an overview of contemporary international photographers and a selection of Croatian artists. Bruna has graduated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerpen, Belgium, and she has published material in magazines such as Dazed&Confused, Qvest, Sleek and many others. She brought some of the recent editions of the world’s leading magazines and we talked about boundaries in photography. After the discussion participants had an opportunity to tell their own story through their photographs, with one-hour-limit for shooting. Commendable!
This was the best part for many of us because we were able to show our photos to people from the professional world of photography and get a feedback. I will point out some of the reviewers: Helena Srakočić Kovač, agent and ex-gallerist who spent all of her business career in London dedicated to photography; Ivana Tomanović, editor in chief of REFOTO magazine and Natalija Bajric, CEO of the photo agency VISUALEYES. Big respect for Ivana’s comment on my photos, it will help me a lot for sure.
Panel discussion: Current Trends in Photography from Galleries to Commercial Industry
Photography in the region against world trends. Croatia has no museums dedicated especially for the photography and that’s a problem. We discussed about the global market and photo auctions, I heard about these prices for the first time.
Thank you for the great weekend, see you next year (or sooner)!
