Inside my apartment

The basic fact that I admire bananas made me think about the food chain, our relationship with nature and 17th century dutch paintings. Vibrant colors against cold, sharp wall texture make a perfect balance and a pleasant overall impression. One of my personal favorite pictures. Belgrade, 2011.

Dejan Šoškić, Serbian National Bank Governor

Incumbent and 4th Governor of the National Bank of Serbia, Šoškić is also Associate Professor at Faculty of Economics. While shooting a portraiture session for the magazine interview, I was fascinated with the royal chair he was seating in and the contradictions he was saying about Dinar which hits record low in 2012, Thursday, 10. February. I felt privileged to be inside the place where National treasury is kept. The institution with its architecture looks nearly ancient, holding some legacy artworks and furniture.
