Joakim Kocjancic


In the beginning, humans migrated from Africa to the landmass we now call Europe. However, it would take a further 37,000 years for the first European borders to take shape. Photographer Joakim Kojancic has a hard time accepting theses borders and has for the last two decades been travelling across the continent searching for an identity that is not limited by these borders. He sees the people that he depicts as a part of himself, of his identity, and feels that we’re all a part of each other. His extensive travels have made these cities blend together into one metropolis, dissolving borders and shifting the focus onto the human condition. With his black-and-white images he tries to arrange and create a balance in the fast-paced urban life – and at the same time creates an inner reality in the borderland between dreams and reality. Europea is a homage to people and to the unusual in the everyday.
