It came the time to say it out loud - I will have my first solo exhibition in January! :joy:
I am not allowed to share images with you yet, but the name is of the same is "Secession from the Attic", representing my favorite period of history and my fascination with dark, forgotten and abandoned places and things.
The concept was shown through the series of photographs featuring human models (both male and female) acting as old porcelain dolls dressed in fashion from period of 1890-1910., "found" in old wooden closets and dark corners of attic.
The idea was built piece by piece, as I took a decision to definitively shoot people as vintage dolls as they always fascinated me so much. When I was thinking about the location, I've realised that my home is perfect place for the set because of it's very own dark corners. To make things better, the building where I live is a perfect example of Secession architecture, built in 1905. by a well known Austro - Hungarian architect Giovanni Rubinich (Rijeka was a part of Austro - Hungarian Empire).
That way, I decided to show my appreciation for art, fashion, history, gloomy and forgotten places and love toward Rijeka through this photographic series.
I have to mention that I had a group of great enthusiastic models who helped me to build the scene, we made all of our costumes by ourselves and tried to re-enact the fashion of forgotten time as best as we knew and could
Stay tuned, because photos might arrive soon!
PS - I wouldn't be myself if photos weren't just a little bit gloomy
