“Every day is a new day. It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact. Then when luck comes you are ready.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea

Minimalism and solitude. The pictures of 34 year old french photographer Michel Rajkovic just make one dream about secluded aquatic landscapes. A lot like Michael Kenna, Hiroshi Watanabe and Michael Levin, who i like aswell. In an interview with ND Magazine he said following to his work being minimalistic: ‘The minimalist side allows us to open a door to the imagination because it gives the viewer the freedom to make his own history, his own interpretation. I only place the elements; I leave the freedom to spectators to leave their imagination to work. For example in my photo “Stairs to nowhere” some viewers at my last exhibition told me they climb the stairs, others remain seated, others down. They are not just mere spectators but they become actors in creating their own history. I love that freedom.’
Very nice said, Mr Rajkovic. Love, Ea Birkkam
