Life on the border
This is the story about the border. Not a high, stone border nor an iron border. This is a thin line which separates “the better from the worse” and “the big from the small”. It is a border in the mind, set by the people. Series of photos named “Life on the border” represents lives of three communities in the northeastern part of Slovenia.
Gypsies, older people and disabled persons (with special needs) all share the same feature; they live on “the other side of the border”. They are considered as some kind of foreign bodies in the society. “Normal” people do not care who these people are and how they feel. They limit and isolate them, because they do not meet the “normal standards”.
In this story, I try to present these groups of people in their own environment without prejudices, see them as they are – special and unique. And the border that once existed magically disappears.
