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!!!

A Better Project

better-time1Every day Cartiere del Garda is committed continuing the growth in the direction of believe and development of industrial processes while respecting and preserving nature. This philosophy gave birth to “A Better Project”, which by growing every year is becoming a quality volume of photographic works about sustainability. For 2007. ten photographers have been selected and given the brief of depicting with their pictures and through their eyes their Better City. In 2008. other ten talented photographers have documented the experiences of one man’s spare time, and have given their interpretation of “A Better Time” – taken from www.abetterproject.it

I’m proud to say that I had a small role in this project while I was helping Borut Peterlin searching for material for his part in BetterTime project. On the page I mentioned above, you will find all photos from project and, among them, six Borut’s.

Also here is my previous post about B5 working on project and B5’s post about same thing.
