My name is Bojan, freelance artist, working in co-responding activities: journalistic and art projects based on photography
From 2016 I do a project in the Mediterranean sea and now in 2019
I'm a Mediterranean native, recognised professional photographer,
artist and journalist, sailing the Med since childhood. My experience with
the methodology for a large- scale project comes from
participation in many journalistic, artistic, editing and marketing projects and
teams, as well as from my own projects.
I started portraying the civilisations of the world’s large rivers (Nile, Ganges,
Sepik in Papua New Guinea) and was published in prominent magazines and
books. In 2010, I started a series of portraying works in the Mediterranean
area, creating foundations for the present project.
I develop the idea of a special installation for self-portraits, a technique that I use now in the project.
My studio was developed during the last 10 years with extraordinary results.
The interviews and portraits in the project are actually co-created by the
inhabitants who will make self-portraits and tell their own story. This makes the
project a group project with hundreds of participants who will also be listed as
authors. Through 200 interviews with inhabitants on many of the 189 islands
documented in photographs, video, and stories in a book, exhibitions and AV
lectures creating connections and social networks.
The project explores the Mediterranean islands’ identity and charisma, presents their potentials, patterns of survival, creativity and social tolerance.
