BIO // MATJAZ KRIVIC

Matjaž Krivic(1972) je popotniški fotograf, ki nam prikazuje tematiko revnih predelov sveta, bogatih s tradicijo in skrivnostnostjo svojih ver. Cesta je postala njegov dom in tako lepote našega planeta že 17 let fotografira na intenziven, svojstven in estetsko presežen način, ki mu prinaša številne prestižne nagrade. Večinoma ga boste našli s fotoaparatom v roki nekje na poti med Saharo in Himalajo.

Njegove fotografije tenkočutno odslikavajo podobe sveta na obrobju; so glas zapostavljenih in polne čustvenega naboja. Neposrednost in spoštovanje drugačnosti mu omogočata, da so ljudje, ki jih fotografira, spontani, naravni in odprti – takšne odseva na film, ujame »njihovo dušo« in spodbudi gledalca k opazovanju in razmišljanju.
