I Got The Looks + Details

Dat cover.It’s been almost a year (A YEAR!) in the making, but today, finally, we are underway with the whole process of printing, color proofing and the likes. It will be ready for the end of May, but I’m yet to know the exact day/time/place for sure.

Also, this is the time when all the thing you thought were correct, looks like you can do it better, as in: moving a 0,5 pt line a few millimeters to the left or try to hide that 0,04% of the picture that maybe looks funny, sometimes. I used to dedicate lots of time to those kind of things, but I decided to let go. It’s not that I’m obsessed with the details, but as you go on, the gap between perfection and your current product begins to shorten, but it will NEVER be perfect. Because few things are. Instead, I focus on how and when are going to distribute it, on making a good campaign out of it and basically, DON’T FUCK THIS UP.

I really hope you enjoy what’s been going on as much as I have. Well, I’ve had my rage days, my homicidal days and my I-give-up-damn-you-all days. But it’s worth it.

Cheers!

Fake Weddings + Replichroming.

falsi pir-4This weekend, I was invited by the Tourism Board of Supetar (island of Brač) to photograph a fake wedding. It was, actually, a fake traditional wedding, making it even more interesting to watch, specially because I was never told much about the whole event, and conversations went like “So… who’s getting married?”, “Oh Mirko, nobody! Now, let’s go get the bride!!”. I was confused.

In the end, this huge celebration was organized by local people in order to celebrate something, that I was never quite certain about, but I’ll just assume that life is a good thing to celebrate. Summer is coming, the sea is getting warmer and having friends, family and health are a good thing to brag about. So they (we) did.

Enjoy.

 

Since you made it so far, I’ll tell you that some pics were made using the base of Replichrome presets, lovely stuff!

Brač Yet Again

Hey all!Brac2

Just a quick post to let you know that I’m –finally– heading to Dalmatia tomorrow! I’ll be staying in Supetar for about a week (or until somebody kicks me out) and I’ll be traveling to different parts of Brač looking for islanders whose ancestors left to Patagonia and still live there, as well as documenting life, landscapes and everything related to that amazing place.

Again, If you feel like giving me a hand, have a coffee or a beer, please let me know at mirkolovic@gmail.com

If you want more details about what I’ll be doing there, have a look at this interview done by Slobodna Dlmacija over here.

30 is the new 30 + zoolander style

Recently, I turned 30 and I want to share two awesome things. Last tuesday however, I turned 30 + 9 months and it was awesome! Far from home, every bit of joy you get when surrounded by friends or family is highly increased by how true these demonstrations are. I collected some phrases that inspired me to overlook the “you’re not a 20 smth anymore”, my favorite being “Growing up is for plants”. The illustration is what you see above (and the link takes you to my IG gallery, if you’ve been missing it!)

Also, on Saturday, a recent interview I gave to Croatian blog Street Style Seconds – http://www.streetstyleseconds.com/ -about the projects I’m working on, my stay here in Zagreb and, as a total rookie, what was I wearing, fashion in Europe and whatnot. What makes me wonder is how people react to fashion (clothes and wearable goods rather than trends) in different parts of the world, specially in those places where weather dictates people’s life’s, and eventually, how they innovate in what they wear to cope with it. I’m tinking about icelandic wool vests now! Anyway, more pics and full interview here (croatian only, sorry!): http://www.streetstyleseconds.com/2014/04/cool-clothing-style-guys-chinos.html

The Face Of Sutivan + Wrinkles Galore

 

Matko

After more than a year without any language lessons, books, or similar, I had to give an interview in my much reduced and grammatically offensive croatian skills while in Split.

Furthermore, I had to speak to everyone on Brač in croatian, which wasn’t much of a problem. Language-wise, I lost all my shame a few years ago, so talking is fine with me. Listening, however, was a more difficult task, since their dialect –Čakavski or Chakavsky– was not the easiest thing to understand for a super novice in easter european languages.

However, the weather wasn’t the best and even though many, many chilean-croatians come from the Island of Brač, at the beginning was no easy task to trace families from which I had no last names, addresses or ways to find them but eventually I got my way around the island, and maybe my broken grammar, thick accent (to my great shame) and objectives were made very clear to most of the people. I’m not even halfway to acquire the material I want to, but at least I’m on my way. Continue reading

Back to Mainland

campanario dioclesiano, SplitBack now!

Here are some other snaps from the wonderful city of Split, Supetar and in between places in Brač. I have many many thanks to everyone I met back in the island, for their generosity, time and friendliness towards me and the interest my project created back there. Continue reading

Halfway there in Brač + My 2 degrees

Last thursday I arrived for the second time to Brač, after 3 years. I was too little here the first time to notice if anything has changed and it was summer time, which equals to madness, partial nudity and lots of crazy day and nightlife.

So at the end of February, this is the exact opposite: quiet streets, not many open stores (I’ve found only one bakery that opens ’til 8 pm) and a crazier weather than expected. Still, the chance to see these places in such calm way is just like looking at the backstage of a huge show that will last for 6-7 months, meanwhile here, for a few days, people are repairing/modifying their apartments, konoba, roads, etc. You get the pic.

While my search for people goes at a slow pace, I’ve found some other images worth capturing.

So, here they are.

Much love.

PS: Noticed when editing images a while ago, I am definitely, totally and unmistakable twisted 2 degrees horizontally, which explains my awkward drawings, pictures and maybe some back pains. Must track progress.

Off to Brač

Hi all!

Just a quick, short post to let you know that as of tomorrow, I’ll be in Brač, Croatia, photographing people, lifestyle and landscapes for a personal project I’ve been working on about immigrants in Patagonia. Brač is one of the islands that most croats came from in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, to the rough Patagonian living conditions, in a region that was just being born.

If you know anyone who has connections to the island, anyone who has stayed after their relatives left, anyone with an interesting story, let me know and I’ll do my best to get to them.

More updates from the island!

***

Hola hola!

Un pequeño posteo para contarles que mañana, y por una semana, estaré en Brač, Croacia, buscando gente, naturaleza y la simple vida de isla para fotografiar, como parte de un proyecto personal en el que estoy trabajando hace un tiempo. Brač la isla de la cual provienen la mayoría de los inmigrantes croatas que actualmente viven en Patagonia y el resto de Chile, cuando debido a factores económicos y ambientales, debieron emigrar a finales de siglo XIX y comienzos del siglo XX, cambiando la tranquila y cálida isla por la austral y dura vida pionera en la joven Patagonia.

Si conocen a alguien que esté vinculado a esta historia, que viva en la isla, alguien que sepa historias o simplemente esté interesado en este proyecto, pueden dejar un lindo comentario.

Mas desde la isla!

Creatures, Animals and Mountains

Since the Instagram pic I last uploaded – HERE –  was to the like of some people (mine as well), I decided to shoot a bit more of the study I’m making on flora, fauna and geography of stuff I came across back in Patagonia plus some other stuff that I think would be cool pets, featuring: whales, lesser rheas, penguins, aboriginals, Torres del Paine National Park, guanacos, birds, chingues, dogs, cougars (the feline one) and some other creatures waring swimsuits, because they’re too ashamed of their fur-covered privates.

The minimalistic color scheme is due to the fact that I lost the colored pens I had. Intentionally, obviously.

This was made in a few hours every day, as a wee thing to keep me busy as I’m finishing many stuff here in Croatia, including my very stay in Croatia, so, a creativity boost was much needed.

Love.
