Follow me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Benosaradzicphotography The human sight wanders; it floats between the parallel planes of visual stimuli, the perception of senses and stored memories. Our vision is an infinitely complex process. It induces feelings, evokes memories, combining them into associations and reactions. It can fool us too, for sometimes, it blinds us with emotions. For me, photography is about capturing an ephemeral slice of time which I unwittingly inhabit among the stars and in between many points of Nothing. My body of work is a combination of sparks of momentary inspiration, with an amalgamation of science, an unhinged creativity and the poetry of mathematics; when shapes align, I become a hyper-aware observer of that moment which lasts no longer than a snowflake on the palm of a hand. Like Alice in Wonderland, I explore strange volumes, separated and intertwined by shadows and light and these, in turn, trigger my impulse. They make me remember my favourite books, films, personal losses and little victories, my wishes, my quiet dreams and my darkest fears. Like a bloodhound, I relentlessly trace the footprints of textures, the reflections and distortions, the faint movements and stillness, the mathematic puzzles and buried, hidden secrets. My art is my hunt. My hunt is my art. It’s an inexplicable hunger that emanates from deep within. It's hard to define the central core of my photographic interest but it is no harder than finding beauty in the mundane. My work is propelled by this quest. Whether I'm photographing a glittering skyscraper or a decaying and abandoned house, a quiet forest in the morning or a thunderous waterfall, I strive to hear the inaudible echoes that lie muted beyond the spectrum of frozen light. It's a never ending pursuit for general aesthetics amidst chaos. It's an exploration for narrative within the noise. I seek visuals that evoke dialogue and spark the curiosity. My collection is infused with joy of life, a great dose of optimism and hope for our world. I enjoy treating light as a tangible object with a painterly, hyper-stylized and dramatized quality. My subjects are arranged with an architectonic order which respect the scale and proportions, yet always sparkling with a sense of ecstatic grandeur. My visuals choose me; I only acknowledge them with my observation. I try to understand with compassion and gratitude. Beauty of light can never be truly understood. As such, it deserves quiet admiration and respect. Beno is a multiple-award winning photographer, art director and filmmaker. He is currently based in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates.
