Converted into a series of black and white moments these images are depicting a typical scene of daily rural life in a northwest small village Pritoka, 8km away from my hometown Bihac, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
While a son is helping his father in performing a routine task of maintaining a village stable, their actions are placed in a vortex of repeating movements of shifting and stacking hay from side to side. What seems to be a very trivial and unexciting act of hardworking villagers it’s hard to not perceive their playfullnes or working spirit. As the sun goes down their are transforming into this fantastic mysterious silhouettes that give each photo a specific hay texture which seems to be a perfect structure for obtaining interesting fine art form that can stand alone or in a correlation with the portrayed.
