Špancirfest 2015

Spancirfest is a street festival that traditionally takes place in Varazdin. Every year at the end of August, cultural core of the town is filled with professional and self-taught artists from all over the world. As the organizers say, it’s a festival that cultivates creative thinking, imagination and freedom of expression. It brings together musicians and bands, theater companies, street performance companies, individual street performers and visual artists. Last year, the festival had over 900.000 visitors, and is looking to break the million mark this year, 17th time in a row.

Hrvatsko Zagorje, velvia 50

After shooting some architecture with Velvia 100, I’ve decided to have some fun with Velvia 50. Like the previous series, in this one I also used Praktica MTL5b and some Pentacon lenses (50mm f:1.8 and 29mm f:2.8, although I also own 200mm f:4 but for some reason I don’t use it). I bought the film in late April this year in a shop called Praxis (pretty much the best place for buying photographic film in Croatia). To be honest, I’ve had a pretty shitty summer due to some postponed faculty related stuff, so pretty much nothing interesting happened, but some of these photos have a deeper background story (at least for me).
