10 years behind. / by Djordje Zivaljevic


It is first 10 years anniversary of any kind in my life. It proves that photography is the only thing that lasted that long. I would not go into the reasons why, but definitely it was an amazing journey.  If anybody has told me on start that it will take so much and give so much I wouldn't believe them.

Ten years is absolute place to clear some dust, rejuvenate some old habits and restart that inspiration with new attitude. It has changed me, and it will in future. We grow together, and we push each other. We discover ourselves to each other and to others. It is like living in a circle. As you go deeper into photography, you go deeper into yourself and when something new emerge, it's part of new you. Repeat.

I can never switch off. Not creating it's like being spring under tension - waiting to release that impulse. That is driving force and evil in one package.

I'm carrying on, with new ideas, new efforts, and with same belief from the beginning - I can do it.
