|URBS EX MACHINA series exhibited in Remont Gallery, Belgrade, 2000.|
Urbs ex machina is a single picture. It is a picture of a city that I live in, Belgrade. The atmosphere of oppression and the emptiness of my BLACK and white surroundings have made it more a feeling than a picture. Fragments of the city, captured through the eye of a plastic toy camera Holga, blend into an interstice hovering somewhere beyond the surface of the photographs. The simple optics of the lens of this elementary photographic machine, leaving traces of its aberrations and distortions in the pictures, has helped my experience of the desolation weighing down on this gray city materialize.
