To this day I clearly remember the old family camera, a 35mm Voigtländer with an optical viewfinder, which my father had bought in Germany before I was even born. It was during the time when he, with other Yugoslavs, was working there as a migrant worker. It was mostly used by my mother, who diligently used it to record all the important things and events in our family.
When I was a boy, I was not really interested in photography. I was more interested in the big box with the family photos. I loved those photos, I enjoyed browsing through them, and loved sorting them into groups that made sense only to me. Those were my first photography steps.
