Exhibition display: Zoran Alajbeg, Iris Slade
The exhibition Photographic Impressum reflects as its typical feature an exceptional readiness for cooperation between the photographer and his models, which include Jasminka Babić, Zlatan Dumanić, Alemka Đivoje, among others. They are mostly depicted with their own artworks and/or in their working space as their additional attributes and qualities of identification. In fact, these are are all atmospheric and mostly individual photo-portraits within a more or less reduced setting. With Alajbeg as a director, here one jumps and bounces, observes or shows one's own work, walks on the snow, gesticulates with one's hands, poses casually or seriously… One's peculiarity and individuality is thus communicated by means of dynamic or static postures, in accordance with the specific temperaments and affinities of portraited persons…“
