Nisam od pisanja novogodišnjih odluka već godinama. Želim vam svima svako dobro, da vam u život dođe što više onog što vam zaista treba. Pretpostavljam da se odmarate od dočeka, jela i pića, pa slijedi jedan lagani post .
I'm not used to make new year's decisions and to-do lists. I wish you all good, and may things you need enter your life. I suppose you're recovering from the NYE and all the food and drinks, so today I'll make an easy post here.
Možda su vam ove dvije fotografije poznate. Mlada Afganistanka koja je slikana kad je imala 17, i onda opet, nekih 15tak godina poslije. Spomenula sam Stevea prije par postova , i ispalo je da je baš njegova izložba u gradu, pa je bio red kad su se već zvijezde poklopile, da to iskoristim. Usput je kumčad posjetila muzej prvi put u svojim životima, i bilo je zanimljivo gledati todlere mlađe od 2 godine kako reagiraju.
Maybe you're familiar with these photographs. Young Afghani girl at the age 17, and then later, ca. 15 years later, again. She is maybe McCurry's most known model. I've mentioned Steve McCurry a few posts before, and it turned out his exhibition was in Zagreb, so we decided to go and see. Also, this was the first time my god children visited a museum, and it was interesting observing them there.
Zanimljiva stvar: kad god se slikaju ljudi sa svih strana svijeta, nekako se najvišu smiju oni, koji su po zapadnim kriterijima u najgoroj poziciji.
I thought the exhibition will be bigger, but what I saw was really good. I'm posting here just a few pictures, but if you're nearby his photographs, go and see. Such pictures make me think. They allow me to enter someone else's life for a few moments, to see how this world looks like on the other side of the planet. Somehow, it brings my perspective to the right place. I see how other people are living their lives. I see how, according to western culture, the poor people are smiling the most. It makes me re-think some personal opinions.
Btw, the last one was taken in Italy, in case you're wondering :)
So, this is how I'm opening 2013. I need to get used to a new date number.
The end of the world is gone, I hope we will survive our everyday living.
