On the shady side of the Alps / Na senčni strani Alp

Category : Arhitektura, dokumentarna fotografija · by Apr 18th, 2015

I was just digging through the archives and I stumbled upon a photo I really wanted to publish, but it kind of fell out of my queue. I shot this photo last summer in Izola, a small coastal town in Slovenia, and it drew my attention because of a phrase we have for our country, that goes “On the sunny side of the Alps”. Since all we hear about Slovenia lately is public debt, corruption and recession, I thought it would be more appropriate to title it “On the shady side of the Alps”… Isn’t it ironic that I am breaking a string of monochrome photos with a color photo that really isn’t even optimistic?

Med brskanjem po arhivu sem naletel na fotografijo, ki sem jo resnično želel objaviti, pa je nekako ostala pozabljena. Fotografijo sem posnel lansko poletje v Izoli, mojo pozornost pa je kader pritegnil zaradi poznanega slogana “Na sončni strani Alp”. Glede na aktualno dogajanje v zadnjih letih, ko je govora skoraj le o javnem dolgu, korupciji in recesiji, sem jo poimenoval kar “Na senčni strani Alp”… Ali ni ironično, da niz črnobelih fotografij pretrgam z barvno fotografijo, ki niti ni optimistična?

Do naslednjič,
