C. Ljubanovic »conversation-portraits(photo-suite)«

Héléne Widmer, Paris 2002
Vintage photography, 24 x 30 cm, scanned and printed with Durst Lambda 130,
on Baryt-photo-paper 70 x 80cm

Since over 35 years C. Ljubanovic works with black and white photography
on the so called »conversation portraits«.

Portraits made with multiple image structures, showing sequences (like film stills)
of encounters and meetings with artists, writers, dancers, curators, actors, film-theater-
museum-directors, or friends with multiple professions.

The photographs show also backgrounds, like cafés, theaters, museums,
streets and parcs of cities and different landscapes, or indoor pictures,
in studios (ateliers) and other settings. The narrative, surprise-included
24 to 36 image-structure gives a feeling about the personality maybe somehow
hidden behind the model.
