My approach to a hometown is in a form of a lived space that I know by experience, but city´s everyday life is being mapped with an awareness of my personal long-standing displacement from the city. In doing so , I am omitting personal biographical (memory) links with sites that bear witness to the spatial transformations. The most obvious changes in the morphology of the area are visible on the periphery, as a consequence of the development of the post-industrial city and the consumer society (gas stations, car washes, shopping centers), which are also, in terms of Augé, examples of non-places. In addition to peripheral, Požega´s center is also included within the series. Architecture and space are treated as points of interest of social relations and functions, but also the inevitable comparison of the spatial boundaries of public and private space. Any action documented within the series is partially expected or planned.
The common element of all photographs within this series is a natural landmark; a spatial marker – the Požega mountain. Its visual appearance is in a role of a background leitmotiv – as a coulisse; and also it contextualises within cartography, the identity of a generic architecture from the city´s periphery.
