About Me

… as Ivan Strahinić:
Leskovčanin (51%), Belgrader (48.98%) and Molakalivaman (0.02%).
I live in Banjica, Belgrade. The oldest and the most frivolous member of the small family Strahinić.
Addicted to travels and everything that it brings and takes…
… Mountains! Islands! Seas!
Wind. Sun (specially sunrises and sunsets!). Clouds. Fog. Rain. Snow.
Permanently asocial. Incredibly kind. Sometimes smart. Vegetarian.
Rock’n’roll/blues/jazz generation. JJ Cale, Yann Tiersen and Einaudi. (Yes. There is a lot of music in my photos!)
Offroad driver. Mountain hiker. Nature walker.

… as a photographer:
Landscape and personal photographer of the nature of Serbia.
Landscape photographer. Photographer of natural light.
(Canon 5D Mark II, Nikon D300, Sony F828, Samsung N200, Samsung Mobile)
I have authored more than 200,000 photos of Serbia. For many years I have traveled through it, with some strange desire to always meet again, discover it and show it on the right way …
I sincerely hope that the projects of promotion of Serbia, and especially my photos, can move many people here, especially young people, to find their pieces of this beautiful country …
I went to Serbia and walked by foot and jeep.
/ Accelerated Serbia in 2012 (730 kilometers, from Bosilegrad to Horgos, in 33 days) /
I exchange energy with nature. I guess mutual love!
Open space. Thousands of different angles. Always different light.
I live my photos.

… kao Ivan Strahinić:
Leskovčanin (51%), Beograđanin (48,98%) i MolaKalivljanin (0,02%).
Živim na Banjici, Beograd. Najstariji i najneozbiljniji član male porodice Strahinić.
Zavisnik sam od putovanja i svega što ona donose i odnose…
… Planine! Ostrva! Mora!
Vetar. Sunce (izlasci i zalasci posebno!). Oblaci. Magla. Kiša. Sneg.
Permanentno asocijalan. Nestvarno ljubazan. Ponekad pametan. Vegetarijanac.
Rock’n’roll/bluz/džez generacija. JJ Cale, Yan Tiersen i Einaudi. (Da. Ima puno muzike u mojim fotografijama).
Vozač džipa, uglavnom van asfalta. .

Autor sam više od 200.000 fotografija Srbije. Godinama na razne načine putujem po njoj, sa nekom čudnom željom da je uvek ponovo upoznajem, otkrijem i na pravi pokažem…
Iskreno se nadam da projektima promocije Srbije, a posebno svojim fotografijama mogu da pokrenem mnoge, pre svega mlade, da pronađu svoje parče ove divne zemlje…
Srbiju sam obišao i obilazim pešice i džipom.
/Prepešačio Srbiju 2012. godine (730 kilometara, od Bosilegrada do Horgoša, za 33 dana)/
Razmenjujem energiju sa prirodom. Valjda obostrana ljubav!
Otvoren prostor. Hiljade različitih uglova. Uvek drugačije svetlo.
Živim svoje fotografije.
