Mojim fotografskim radovima se fokusiram na situacije i lokalitete na periferiji grada kao i na udaljene, egzoticne pejsaže koji su daleko od svakodnevice ubrzanog života. Fotografije najradije pravim noću, kada mi čula nisu opterećena površinskim previranjima svakodnevnog urbanog okruženja. U ovim uslovima nestvarna aura lokaliteta zaokuplja moju pažnju. Privlače me scene koje u sebi nose osećaj slutnje, latentno odsustvo elemenata realnosti koje je teško objasniti, nešto kao Duh Mesta – Genius Loci.

Prevodim intenzitet doživljaja mog iskustva u crno-bele slike koje postaju topografski ali i psihološki pejsaži. Tematski, nedavno sam prešla sa urbanih na prirodne prostore koji su skoro potpuno ispražnjeni od arhitekture i u kojima preovladava blato i zemlja. Pa ipak, ljudska prisutnost se nazire i u njima.

“Untitled”, 2007
From the series “Terra di Dio”, 2009

With my photography, I focus on situations and locations at the edge of a city and on remote exotic natural landscapes, separated from the ordinary hectic life. Preferably I photograph in the darkness of a night, when my senses are not being distracted by influences of the daily superficial urban environment. In these circumstances a location catches my attention when it shows an ethereal aura. I am attracted by scenes that carry a foreboding, a present absence of elements that is hard to define. A kind of Genius Loci.

I translate the intensity of this experience into black and white images, which are topographical as well as psychological landscapes. In terms of a subject matter, I recently moved from urban to nature landscapes. It features almost no architecture as I focus mostly on soil and earth. And yet the human presence is lurking.
