Hi there, I am
At this point in my life, visualizing and creating photography that represents my interpretation of this crazy and beautiful world comes as second nature. What is challenging for me now, is how to convey to you who I am, why I choose expressing myself through photography and how my journey has shaped so much of my artistic expression.
I am from Pag, a beautiful island in Croatia. I was born on November 5th 1988.
At the age of 6 years I took my father’s suitcase, packed it with my favorite outfits and snacks and wrote a letter to my parents that I was unhappy, and I was leaving to go on a mission to find my happiness.
Obviously being 6, I didn’t make it very far before my father found me. He didn’t scold me for leaving, he wasn’t mad, in fact he didn’t say anything at all. He just put me on the back of his motorcycle pointed to a place on his map and we were off! It was this moment when I fell In love with traveling.
I was not an easy child. I was raised on a small Island where I felt like I was suffocating. There was no room to explore or be creative. My country was at war, I was confused, angry and aggressive towards everyone. I spent my time on the streets fighting and bullying others. I was unhappy.
If you follow my work, you see that I mention street fight consistently. This is because it taught me my first life lesson. That no matter what, I was not going to give up, I was going to keep going no matter what, without fear. I would fight to find my happiness.
