A Little About...

Jovan Milosevic

eg

Hello, my name is Jovan Milosevic and I am a photographer based out of Toronto, Ontario. I have been involved with photography for most of my life and am lucky enough to have learned the basics using a 35mm film camera. I find there is nothing quite like developing your own film and editing photographs in a darkroom under the dim glow of a red light rather than in front of a monitor. That being said I have progressed with the times and am (sadly) now more competent with my trusty Canon 5D MKII and digital editing software (my favorite being Adobe Photoshop) than with film. I have also held numerous positions within the photographic field over the years which have allowed me to stay on top of current web publishing, social media, design and marketing practices.

Technically, my art is an exploration of angles, contrast, reflection and light. I am intrigued with traditional black and white images and I quite enjoy exploring the transformation of a photograph when it is changed from black and white to colour representation and vice versa. Black and white is always more mysterious, if for nothing else than for the uncertainty of the actual colours that the array of gray hues stand for.

Photography is something that I hold rather valued in my life. From when I got my very first film camera when I was eleven to present time - the new era of digital images and computer editing. I have had many years of practice to develop my own styles of composition and representation. My art tends to be exact and simple in form yet mystical and distinctive in appearance. I like to look at things differently because I believe that there is always another side to the story. Photography allows me the freedom to interpret and convey what I see in a way that incorporates my life experiences.
