Photography is not merely about experiencing the world, but about framing and interpreting what we see. A photograph is therefore never a representation of an ultimate truth, but rather the reflection of our subjective realities.
I deem myself very fortunate to be able to explore some of the most breathtaking destinations in Europe and beyond, from my home of choice, Vienna. Born and raised on the Serbian side of the Hungarian border, I come from a modest background, lived through war and hyperinflation. As a teenager, I worked three jobs to put myself through high-school. At age 21, I left everything behind and moved to Austria without speaking a word of German. Although it seemed a bold decision at the time, it allowed me to graduate from university as the first in my family and discover photography for myself. For this, I'm forever grateful.
Photography has not only become my zeal, it's the driving force behind my wanderlust and curiosity to explore the world.
Thanks to photography, I see things in different light. Figuratively and literally. It has taught me to fully immerse in the moments spent in nature, but I've also never looked at the sky the same way since.
We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us

Photographs have the power to transport us to a different world. They can take us to calm mountain lakes, rumbling waterfalls, dramatic sunsets and quiet sunrises, icy summits, raging seas, and whirling storms. Photography is a journey. Come along or a voyage of visual exploration.
