As the self-isolation/ social distancing is well into its second month here in North Macedonia, many of us are trying to get a grip on the situation the best way we can.
By now most of us have been in isolation/ social distancing for at least a while now. The government measures here began about a month ago and since all my work engagement ceased at the same moment, my isolation began effectively. As a portrait/ architecture photographer, meeting new people and going new places were big "no no"s in the given situation, so I have had to find ways in which to keep on being productive during this time.
In honor of the International Women's Day, the exhibition will be opened on the 09th March, at 19h, at the Europe House venue. If you're in Skopje and fancy swinging by, I'd love to see you 🙂
Last month, I was hired to take portraits of a the employees of a company in Skopje (something I often do). The people were young, nice and attractive, but were in no way models or experienced in front of a camera- except for their selfie cameras. As the shooting went on, they kept finding flaws in their pictures and wanted to retake them, but all I wanted to tell them was how nice their smile was, or how great their hair looked, or how flawless their skin was- but kept most of it to myself so that they didn't think that I wanted to get off easy
Around December, when I finally got the time to edit my photographs from Rome, I realized that I had taken a lot of street portraits of people looking at their phones. Sure, they may have been tourists looking for directions, but my first thought was that nowadays we always look at our phones hoping to... Continue Reading →
Today is the 1st of April a.k.a. April Fools Day. In my country it's a custom to have masquerades on this day, but I myself am not a big fan of masquerades (nor was I ever). However, in the odd chance that I should actually attend a masquerade in a mask, I always have a... Continue Reading →
The world has been telling women that they don't look right since I can remember (and that was a while ago). We're either too fat, too skinny, have to straighten/curl our hair, our face needs more makeup, we wear too much makeup, and so on, and so forth. If you're a woman reading this, you...

December was a dark month. Literally, there was not a whole lot of light to work with. After publishing a book in November 2018 (and working on that book for the past year) I decided to take a month off and work only if I felt inspired. But I was tired- I was coming off... Continue Reading →
The story about Little Red Riding Hood can be traced back as early as the 10th century, but the most famous variations on the topic have been written by Charles Perrault and the Grimm Brothers. In case you haven't heard it, it's about a little girl that wears a red coat with a red hood... Continue Reading →
Let me start this off by stating: I do not like snow. But snow photographs well. I have this theory that snow is like this very handsome ex you dated. Whenever you see him/her you're excited about the way they look, but after a minute you remember how much of a prick they were and... Continue Reading →
