Moja Indija


Pred natanko tridesetimi leti sem se odpravil na svojo prvo pot v Indijo. Bil sem na nekakšnem pomembnem osebnostnem razpotju in življenje pred menoj je bilo skrito v meglici vznemirljivo-zaskrbljujoče negotovosti. Nove odločitve so bile več kot nujne. Življenje mi jih je čudežno prihranilo in vse se je zavrtelo kot namazano, ne da bi se sploh ukvarjal s tem, kaj me zares čaka v prihodnosti …
Na tej prvi poti po Indiji leta 1988 sem še kot ljubiteljski fotograf posnel kar precej fotografij, in ko sem jih po povratku domov pokazal na neki švicarski reviji, se je lastnik in odgovorni urednik vanje dobesedno zaljubil. A ta moja pot ni bila navadno popotovanje po tej čudoviti državi. Bila je res nekaj posebnega, saj sva s prijateljem Bojanom Brecljem kar mesec dni preživela na reki, pa ne na katerikoli reki, svoje prvo popotovanje sem namreč preživel na sveti reki Ganges.
Danes, ko gledam skozi to časovno prizmo spominov, lahko z mirno vestjo rečem, da mi je Indija korenito spremenila in obenem polepšala življenje. Prav zaradi fotografij, posnetih na tej svoji prvi poti, sem povsem nepričakovano postal pravi fotograf, ki so ga številne agencije v Parizu in po svetu kar zasipale z delom. Indija mi je torej pomagala, da sem zadnjih trideset let živel tako zanimivo in polno, kot si nikoli nisem niti predstavljal, da bom … Hvala ti, moja Indija!

My India


Exactly thirty years ago, I set out on my first journey to India. I was at a sort of significant personal intersection and the life ahead of me was hidden in the mist of overwhelming and worrying uncertainty. New decisions were more than imperative. Life has spared me miraculously and everything turned out so smoothly that I did not even have to deal with the future lying ahead of me.
On this first journey to India in 1988, I took many photographs as an amateur photographer back then, and when I showed them to a Swiss magazine owner and editor in-chief upon my return, he literally fell in love with them. However, my trip was not an ordinary journey in this wonderful country. We spent a month on a river with my friend Bojan Brecelj, but this was not just any river – I spent my first trip to India on the holy Ganges River.
Today, looking back through the prism of time, I can honestly say India has radically changed and improved my life. Thanks to the very snapshots taken on this journey I suddenly became a real photographer, a professional sought for his work by a number of agencies in Paris and around the world. India therefore enabled me to live such an intriguing and full life I would never have imagined having. Thank you, India!
