from the Balkan photography
(older thoughts during a balmy night at the Black Sea; or was it already at sunrise?)
It goes on since more than a decade, and every time it goes beyond itself. Where is the frontier? Or better, how far can you go?
The ambiguity of senses. The sweet suffering of an imminent tragedy (an ode to a sacrifice) where no one survives but all have lived 100 lives in a sole week!
Because it takes a daily sacrifice of many months to deliver such a gift as VSLO’s (now Photo Trends) life changing experience.
My dear fellow participant, regret is optional, but at least next time you see a photographer sit them down and offer them the story of your life which you have just lived.
My dear fellow participant, change is inevitable, you have just been touched by gods.
“My hands are in love, alas, my mouth loves and – see, I am suddenly aware that things are so close to me I can hardly walk among them without suffering.” (Nichita Stanescu)
