And What Does Vladimir Tasevski say?


Which talents and passions of yours would you point out if you’d have to choose?

I was interested in many things in life. So far I tried out playing guitar and drums, photography, programming, video editing… Besides that, I trained rugby in primary school and real aikido in late 90’s and early 00’s, etc. if I’d choose what interests me the most, those would be photography, computers and multimedia. With time it became clear that I am visual type. Photography is kind of meditation for me. I love going to take pictures and wandering through city streets in a search for motives that inspire me to forget about everyday problems and thoughts. I focus on what I do and drift from reality. Perhaps I could compare it with Tai Chi Chuan and name it meditation through movement.

What gives you inspiration as an artist? People, animals, landscapes, human soul or something completely different?

What inspires me the most are sights and scenes I notice in my everyday life and surrounding. I also started making portraits and street photography lately and it’s a new field I’m exploring and learn a lot about it. I like to discover some strange, grungy and lapsed places in this modern city and then take pictures of them. Many people find my images dark, especially because I mostly work in black and white, but I think that one should point out poverty and chaos around us.  Perhaps that makes people change something and take better care of their environment and surrounding in general. I believe that my photos are not appealing to crowd that likes colourfulness, but that’s not my goal anyway. I follow what I feel when working and if someone likes it – great, if not – again great, because that’s also a kind of reaction. It is a success for me even when photos trigger loathing, fear or is important that there is some kind of reaction. It’s the worst when the image is unnoticed and doesn’t trigger any feeling. That’s a failure for me. Any other reaction is good.

Artist that are on the same wave length as you, your inspiration and / or mentors are…?

That’s a hard question. There are so many great artists that it’s very hard to say. It would be a cliché if I would point out Magnum Photographers, so I’ll skip that this time. Perhaps I could mention famous Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado. While researching contemporary documentary and street photography, I also discovered very interesting works of Markus Andersson, Australian photographer from Sydney, who presents his city in a very special, interesting way. What I find amazing is how he uses analogue imaging techniques and that is something I am prone to and use lately. You may watch the video about him and his work on YouTube. Of course, there are many other interesting artists and I would recommend documentary „Everybody Street“ to those who want to learn more. That film really helps me a lot in my approach and learning about street photography.

Comment about your work and / or life and world around us that you are especially fond of or means to you the most?

I think I already answered this question partly. The essence is that it is very important for me to point out different bad things that happen in around us and that way to make people to notice and change such things. I find injustice, indifference and disrespect hurtful.

Who and what always puts a smile onn your face?

My children always put a smile on my face. They bring me inspiration and peace. They are very playful and funny, because they are still little. My eldest son is also my great inspiration. He is also interested In photography, so we often go together to take photos. As much as he learns from me about photography, I also learn a lot from him, because young people sees the world and people around us in a different way and it’s very interesting for me to research that.
