Borut Grce Digital
CV, kind of It's a boring one. Except for my primary school art teacher, a great watercolorist as I discovered later on, who found a way to discipline some of his more restless pupils, me included, by locking them up after school into his study full of various art books. Flipping pages and pages of beautiful pictures revealed a new, yet unseen world and started an insatiable hunger for discovering things of beauty in most unlikely places. Despite my teacher's efforts, I never learned to draw well enough, but he managed to show us other ways to express ourselves and was prepared to provoke and support our efforts, no matter how inept they may have been at the time. After that came the discovery of photography which enabled me to paint with light despite the lack of traditional artistic skills. And countless hours in darkroom, dipping fingers in chemicals and waiting for unexpected images to show at last. While studying journalism, I was lucky enough to be either working with or interviewing some of the best Slovene photographers of the time, learning a few tricks of the trade on the way. If I am to pick just one name, I'd say Stojan Kerbler with his wide-angle family portraits was the one by whose work I was most impressed. Which is not to say that others and not only photographers, did not influence and enrich my perception of the world out there. And long after there were suddenly computers promising to at least mimic all artistic tools I was never able to master before. And finally there's digital photography, enabling me to shoot first, think, tweak and twist later.
