This is how it all started!

Violeta Bulc also joined group exhibition in Town Hall in Ljubljana

Violeta Bulc contacted me one day with the wish to get family photos of Pina Maja, Žiga and herself. I thought: Oh my god, how can I do portraits that are truly honest and relaxed? Then an idea popped up that I first had twenty years ago: ‘do it yourself, do it in front of a mirror!’. A few days later, my first prototype with studio flashes and camera on the other side of a big mirror was operational and yielded surprisingly open-hearted photos. ‘Self-fish Studio’ started officially in January 2010 with a project & exhibition …

… at the Town Hall gallery in Ljubljana. Selffishstudios website was operating, and the work-in-progress exhibition was growing each day …  In just 8 days, 100+ people came to experience it! Every day a number of new images were being developed and at the end, there was a COLLECTIVE EXHIBITION of 65 authors, a spontaneous collective presentation of the people who did their own portraits!
