ABOUT THE AUTHORS: The project is actually a Group project:

Since portraits are actually at least co-created by those who would make self-portraits and tell their story, the project is actually a group one and everybody participating would be named as an author.

Self-fish studio was ‘on location’ during the event, open and free for particiants as well as for local people whowanted to experience it (like Pierpaulo Sonnoli, photographer from Tieste, Bogdan Macarol, Jasna Persolja and others). The idea of setting up the studio for the workshop participants actually came from Iztok Osojnik, the heart and head of the event, and some fascinating creativity has been revealed.
