Hrvoje Dumančić


Ima nešto posebno i neopisivo u tome kad stvaraš rukama! Zato volim rane fotografske procese. Pojavili su se prije rođenja fotografske industrije koja je tu čaroliju potisnula i sve pojednostavila kako bi se masovno fotografiralo. Prije toga bio sam aktivni slikar i između ostaloga slikao konje koje obožavam. Radio sam i skulpture, doduše male, u skladu s mojim radnim prostorom.

Pretpostavljam da sam zbog toga fasciniran radom Hrvoja Dumančića i to na više razina, a ne samo na vizualnoj. Kad gledam spotove kako stvara u svom atelijeru zavidan sam i ljubomoran, ali na onaj pozitivan način koji kreativca čini kreativnijim. Divim se njegovim skulpturama i radu zbog čega mi je neizmjerno drago da sam ga upoznao. Hrvoje, evo mene k tebi skoro u atelijeru na kavu, da odmorim oči i dušu 😀
