This is a story (sketches from stories) that I was preparing for a Fotopub Festival in Slovenia on which unfortunately I didn’t go. I left this story aside but few weeks ago, I decided to finish it.

I was inspired by Mike, Rebecca and Borut and realized that photofilms are something where I can exploit myself full time. As I’m professional musician, expression of sound is something very familiar to me. Combining photography with sound is something I found to be close to me and hopefully you will see it and hear it too.

Long story – short – Ljubija is a small town in north western part of Bosnia. Once cultural and social center of region, strongly dependable of nearby iron mine. Once iron was exploited – Ljubija was left and forgotten. Those are sketches and emotions of Ljubija inhabitants – Cicko, Bodo and Mladen.

Photography – Igor Motl

Original music – Igor Motl

Edit and production – Igor Motl

  1. Jako lijepo, povremeno imam priliku da uocim tvoj rad i jako mi se dopada. U vrrijeme kad sam ja bila mlada i zivjela u PD, kreativci kao sto si ti ili su isli iz Prijedora ili ih je jeo prijedorski mediokritetski mrak.

    1. Hvala. Da… Ima nas još… Ima i mraka… Nije Prijedor izuzetak. To je sudbina svakog malog grada na Balkanu. Neophodno je pronaći iskrene i jasne motive kako bi sve funkcionisalo bez negativnog uticaja sredine. Nije lako a nije ni teško u isto vrijeme. Pozdrav
