It started with a journey to Mauritania, went on around France, pottered around my Zagreb quotidian, a photographic diary with no date, no rationalisation of feelings and no order. Undisciplined and inconsistent. Incomplete, with outbursts of rapid thoughts, fictional dialogues and commentaries in which I invoke favourite Greek heroes and gods.  And when they got involved in the work, it was even more impossible to put the accumulated photographic archive in order, bring it to a conclusion. As always, thus in this work too, photographic material is used as visual and technical support upon which I shall, a hundred, two hundred, times attempt to start commence some story of my own.

Produced on locations in Mauritania, France and Zagreb in the period from 2019 to 2021
