About

this section looks at who I am and the idea behind the project

Who am I ?

My name is Voyko and I am a photographer. I originate form Slovenia, but have also lived in Italy and since September 2010 I have been living in London. My greatest fascination is of people. Photographing people gives me a greater understanding of them. Like most photographers I am very inquisitive and curious and wish to learn more about my subjects. I am always looking for new projects and trying to explore the world around me. My greatest fascination is of people. Photographing people gives me a greater understanding of them. A picture can tell you a lot about someone or a situation. A photograph can capture personalities, mannerisms and the emotion of social interactions.

about the project

I moved to the Willesden Green area of London in early 2011. The first characteristic of the area that caught my attention was the wonderfully diverse and colourful array of people and cultures from all over the world.

While walking through the town I was mesmerised by the people. There were many features of the cultures and religions that I was captivated by. The different ways people went about their lives. Their clothing, the colours and style, the places people would meet and the unshakeable sense of belonging, connectivity and community.

This got me to thinking about the lives of these people, about the parts that we don’t see. I realised that I knew very little about the people in my community, the people that I walk past, the people that ordinarily you may not even notice.

It is this which led me to embark on this project, I aim to find out about the social and religious activities of my neighbours and what connects them. To achieve this I will seek to visit the religious communities in the area, to learn about them and promote them through my work.

This is a working project, and updates will be added to the portfolio as it progresses.

What people think about the project ?

In this section I look at the feedback I have gathered from the people I have observed and photographed. This is a crucial part of the project for me as I wish to know if the people I am meeting welcome my presence as much as I appreciate them allowing me in to their communities.
