By definition, street photography represents an art photo taken in an unhealthy environment. The subject is people and everyday life, and the focus is not their identity, as is the case with portraits, but no composition, lines, form, texture, emotions, and atmosphere. Street photography allows you to be impassive and impressionistic. That’s why many photographers record the idea of a black and white photograph as the final result, leaving out the color.
The tone of street photography is almost always positive and cheerful, it celebrates life in its spontaneous beauty. Street photography is not glamorous, it is deeply honest. Every day is not just “every day”. It is a new beginning and a new opportunity for inspiration. It is the mirror of the society in which we live and our place in it. Street photography is the attitude, openness to the surprises and excitements that come to our rescue.
The exhibition “In your eyes” presents exactly the notes of those moments. Three photographers, Srđan Sladaković, Nenad Vilimanović, and Mlađan Sladaković, put together their collections of everyday moments collected across the various world cities into one story. A story about a man and a small, personal enjoyment in life. Like many famous photographers, they pass on to us what attracted their attention and made it be recorded in time.
