On September 9th 2015, I gave my first artist talk. It was frightening, amazing and surreal for so many reasons, but mostly for being among some of the best photographers of the region.

Open Show Zagreb is a yearly event organized by Organ Vida, the most prestigious festival of documentary and journalist photography of this part of Europe. It not only presents an opportunity for both emerging and acclaimed photographers to show their projects to the audience, but also encourages a dialogue between the audience and the artists themselves. It is an incredible opportunity to hear thoughts, talk, gain fresh insights and get feedback.

My project Melancholia was in the good company of established photographers with an incredibly mature style – Davor Konjikusic, Inia Herencic, Matic Zorman and Ivan Dorotic.
