“Quartet” by Ronald Harwood, directed by Darko Cvijetić, a new play by Prijedor Theater. All images are made on general rehearsal. Interesting thing to me was that this is a chamber type of play and audience will be present on the stage. It creates new way of seeing things, some kind of “3-dimensional” performance. Everybody will see it from different angle and perspective. It was challenging thing to do.
Concerning my absence from posting stuff here, it can be explained with my decision to get back to my guitar playing, my wife and I are expecting a baby, apartment reconstruction… Trying to cover several fronts at the same time can be an exhausting activity so I have to settle down my priorities. I’ll try to post regularly but with wider breaks in between. Maybe, in the future, I will post and some music of mine here with the photography I do.
‘Till next time…
First of all, I would like to write few words about project I am on to. It is a “Portrait of a city” and it’s about my town Prijedor (RS, BiH). I would like to show my town throughout people who are promoting city of Prijedor on their own, unique or professional way. Artists, politicians, craftsmen, journalists…
First in series is one above. On picture is Darko Cvijetić – theatre actor, theatre director, poet. Currently works in Prijedor city theatre. Story behind this portrait is that I tried to connect him with some part of a city or with some city characteristics. Behind him is a “red building” (crveni soliter), a building from period of socialism that is connected with some sort of urban legend – building with high rate of suicides. Darko is a resident of that building and he knew few people who committed suicide up from that building. I put him lying down writing a poem as a some sort of homage to all who fell.
For lighting, I use small strobe Vivitar 285HV, Elinchrom triggers and Westcot silver reflective umbrella. Light was positioned on camera right and on full power. Backdrop was lightened by late afternoon sun.
