My life-in-a-day story is about simple, small-town existence, stripped off of the latest technologies and the rush of the big city.
Every year, for two months I’m packing small part of my belongings and I’m moving back, to stay in hometown with my parents, grandma and the rest of the family, helping them with daily chores, doing the work around the house and … well just being there, as a son and grand-son that I cannot be, really, through a telephone and because of the distance.
Tired of living the incoherent life of mine throughout a year I’m always looking forward to go back. There’s no hectic, no craziness of looking at your watch and chasing yourself over the streets. There’s innate beauty in the stillness of such day, soothing feeling of doing the work, knowing it must be done but not hearing the clock ticking ominously.
I tried to convey that in my photographs; showing also that beneath tranquility and the apparent nothingness & monotony of a day like this there are hidden dynamics to see: in the relationships and between man and articles of daily use.
