5am book by Borut Peterlin

Borut Peterlin – Slovenian photographer has a new book called 5am which is possible to purchase over Blurb.com. I know Borut for some time and we were discussing about his 5am project for few times and I saw just a small amount of pictures that he took on his long term personal project. It was just hard for me to visualize it as a concept but right now, after I saw his book (not real book but over Blurb and his web site here – and I will buy this book for sure) I’m amazed of how powerful it really is.

He captured that strange time of night/day with mixture of humor, empathy and with a great sense for dramatization. Well done Borut!!!

b5Borut Peterlin, great Slovenian photographer shared his knowledge today at Prijedor’s Gallery 96. Spoke about his work, about common and also creative usage of light (ambient and additional), did few nice portraits. Atmosphere was very relax and hopefully this was just first in a row of workshops where people from this small town on hilly Balkans can meet world artists and have a chance to speak with them.

Honored I am (B5 in action)

For last two days I had an opportunity to assist Borut Peterlin during his project in BiH. Great man, great photographer, great pictures. We were traveling around Prijedor region (maybe a little bit wider).  Here are some pictures of B5 in action and few pictures of an outstanding place called Janjske Otoke near Šipovo. Boruts pictures(portraits) you can find on his blog. I had a great time working with him, and I hope it would not be the last.
