From Visa pour l’Image, Perpignan, France

B5 presenting his Tour de Dayton project to honorable audience in Arles.

Today I’ve returned from Visa pour l’Image Perpignan 2011 festival in south-west of France. Fotopub crew Andrej, Baco and myself reunited in Perpignan with Meta Krese, Arne Hodalič and Chris de Bode, where we started making program for Fotopub festival 2012. It will be a blast, I can tell you that, but you know that already, so please book a week between 23.-28. July 2012 and come to Novo mesto, Slovenia.

I brought also my portfolio to Perpignan and show it to few agents. An editor from the most important agency in the world (how difficult is to guess which) loved my creative portraits and even more my Flower Power images. His comment: “You’re f… Bold. You break every rule there is and I hate them as much as I love them! I can’t stop looking at them!” We promised that we’ll start a cooperation, but I know since I’m based in Slovenia and not in London or Paris or NY, it will be much harder. No doubt challenging times in front of me 🙂

On the way back from Perpignan, we stopped at Arles and check few exhibitions. I love Arles even more then Perpignan, but not more then Fotopub, of course.

  1. B5 je začel ‘contemplating’ kake 6minut po začetku projekcije prvi dan in 21 minut drugi dan. Prvi dan smo se menjavali (vsaj eden je bil v fazi uncontemplatinga), drugi dan pa je B5 imel monolog 😉

  2. Jah, morda je to res Baco, a fotografija pove več kot 1000 besed, tako dokler ne boš objavil inkriminirajočo fotko, bosta samo vidva kontemplatorja.

    PS: pošlji jo in jo dodam 🙂

  3. Fotopub is “The” festival in photography. Remember there is a lot more to photography than journalism and Fotopub has it all! I can’t wait for next year…GREAT ENERGY!

  4. Great energy can’t wait for Great JC and Great Leopardman and Great Brezovacova 🙂

  5. JC as B5 once sad, let the great energy be with you! Take care.

  6. Yes, that’s true, but actually the correct version is:
    May the great energy be with you

    PS: Does that sounds very gayish?

  7. The way that “great energy” has been used, misused and abused makes me think that it should be on the fotopub t-shirt next year….or maybe instead of the thursday award there will be the “great energy” award.

  8. Perhaps G-string underwear? But I mean like a real man g-string, you know in camouflage pattern! I think you would rock at your opening speech in Prijedor gallery!

  9. Excellent Borut, congratulations for the “challenging times”, you definitely deserve it! 😉

  10. Grazie mille! I feel like I would deserve also some tranquil time, but no luck with that!
    he, he..
