Sanja Marusic Flowers in December

“I think in images, not in words.”

While traveling through uncommon and surreal looking places, one might notice some similarities with Sanja Marusic’s color-saturated photographic world.

Photographed in six different countries over a period of two years, “Flowers in December” is a series of portraits in which human presence is merely accidental and rather used as props. Bright contrasts and a certain desolation paired with a highly saturated nature depicts people in a moment of transition, unaware of the camera.

Though human figures appear in almost every frame, they are not the center of the images: the landscape is the true protagonist here.

When traveling, the only way to discover the rhythm of life of a place is to experience it.

Each place we visit has its own particular look, ambiance, and atmosphere. Understanding its people, customs and traditions is vital and there’s always something unique to capture.

This summer we want to see images that communicate the life of a place in all its splendor, and trigger our memories. Whatever the subject may be: Street, Portrait, Landscape, Documentary... We want to share your journey, visually and intellectually - Let’s travel together!
