My final photograph

with 7 comments

On Sunday I was photographing a memorial ceremonial mass in Kočevski rog where in year 1945 there was without a trial a mass execution of collaborators and also many innocent people. On the way there I passed a place where my friend crashed his car into a tree and died and since I was driving through Kočevski rog forest roads the thought of death lingered back in my mind. On the road I noticed a sculpture by unknown artist and I took a picture of it (above) and then I was at ease, because this is a really great picture to finish a life of photographer, isn’t. Much cooler then Cappa’s final picture.

  3. Well if it was the last photo you took in your career it would say a lot about living a photo-journalists life.

    But is it really your final shot?! For real…

    Hope not

  7. @ JC, your ability to hit the nail on the head when nobody understand the artist is once again reveal itself in the majestic way. I couldn’t agree more.
