Dragan Marković (Belgique) a participé au workshop PAYSAGES URBAINS ET INDUSTRIELS avec Mark Power.
I'm 30 years old and I've been a photographer for almost 10 years now. I studied at Ecole de Recherche Graphique, Brussels, a school which gave me a large spector of knowledge in the field of contemporay photography, and art in general.My ongoing project is based on the idea of the city as a stage. web site
A stage for citizen and for buildings as well. Constructions, especially houses, have always fascinated me. This fascination is double-sided. I enjoy the silentness and the shapes of the modern ways of housing. On the other hand, I deplore the dehumanization which comes along. Nothing is black or white and I try to find this dialectical middle way between the visual, poetical pleasure and a quite ironic criticism on how the cities as they're designed nowadays provoke a lack of encounters, some kind of alienation, the disappearing of citizenship,... I'm also a big fan of the German school, the New Objectivity and i think it's a beautiful challenge to find out what this movement worths now that new technologies are evolving so fast. Digital photography broke the analogical photographic chain and one can question the authencity and objectivity of a cliché when it's eventually all about data.I wanted to attend this workshop because I wish to develop my project methodology and learn new techniques. Another point is meeting other photographers with another modus operandi, and, of course, learn from Mark Power's experience in the field of large scale photo project.
