In 1973 I came to Germany as a student of German Studies and – I stayed in Germany. It is my second home. My first home is Croatia. I was born there and I still like to go there today. Croatia is a small but beautiful country. The diversity of the landscapes in such a small country inspires me - and I'm excited when I see her. There are, of course, the many childhood experiences in which I like to "rummage" today when I create my pictures. Or the memories of my parents in a small Croatian village. My world of experiences is strongly influenced by these childhood experiences. I love the plain of Slavonia, the coast and the sea of Dalmatia, the mountains of Lika and Zagorje. And I feel the same enthusiasm for landscapes when I travel in the southwest of the USA or in New England, in the north of Spain or in South Africa, in Germany or in Italy. With the help of digital technology, I design my landscape photographs in "my" colors - just as I experienced the photographed emotionally. This is how my digital landscapes emerge.
The general theme of my art work is: experience and feeling of beautiful.
I photograph the moments in a process - moments that are part of eternity. The absolute source of inspiration for me is the nature. I love the water, the stones, the sea, the light, the sky, the colors, the beauty - as in this photograph. "The end product" of my work is either pure photography, or an image created digitally based on the photograph. I try to see the photographed "new", to experience it "new" and to interpret it "new". I hope the viewer sees and feels the same way: seeing and feeling the familiar things of life with "new" eyes.
