I was composing a photobook about Istanbul as a Christmas present and put together photographs from three times I was there. Although there is no rational argument in this composition, they feel pretty similar. And “that feel” is the best and the most interesting thing in photography. At least for me. At least for now.
Christmas roller / mirkčiojantis volas
Near my parents home there is Lithuanian Road Administration under the Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Lithuania. Every year before the Christmas they decorate an old machine in front of their building. It’s not the first time I’m using this picture, but it still perfectly blends #awkwardbeauty and Christmas together. I’m not sure why I used film.. Anyway I noticed that they changed the machine recently, so I guess I should pay a visit.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Outside the Graffiti Circle | Erosie | Artist Story | DRAW A LINE
"To me graffiti is a discipline, it’s like a sport. There is a field with lines that set the rules. Each line is a rule for doing a tag, a piece or a throwup. Graffiti to me never was the end goal, it always was a way of experiencing personal growth. Of course you can play the game on a personal way but it is kind of clear and obvious what to care about and how to play. I always thought this was a big contradiction in the graffiti game; endless freedom in public space on one side, but very clear limitations, strict codes on the other side. Everybody knows when the ball is in or the ball is out." Erosie
So obviously there is more than just young and bold rebellion. From outside it can look pretty chaotic, but inside there’s “a discipline”. Not that it’s something new, but most of the time it’s recognised from outside as anti discipline.
Shooting (for me) is somehow related to geometry. You can shoot a balloon from Bosphorus shore and win something.
I came across this picture and I couldn’t resist…
I made this photo of Vilius and Barbora last year for their interview with a magazine and a few days ago i noticed how light and dark areas interchanges.
