City portrait #16 – Mirjana Maksimović

mirjana-maksimovic-(1-of-1)

Mirjana Maksimović is a professor of biology and ecologist. She is a founder of “Sanus” a non governmental organization based on environmental education and environmental protection.
One of the programs that Sanus is covering is also a prevention in water pollution.
So… I thought… there will be my starting point in making this portrait. I pictured it in my head very clearly and I was pretty satisfied. When we went on a location I realized that things are not going as well as I imagine it. Idea was to take a picture of Mrs. Mirjana holding a glass of water through which will be visible a chimney of old brick factory – symbolizing water pollution by heavy industry. But… it is hard to get that through glass reflection. So… here is the result.

I tried with another approach and try a different one with Mrs. Mirjana holding a glass and trying to save it clean.
