Between mountains and rivers
Branko Bradaškja is an amateur photographer from Trenta. At only fourteen he had to leave home for the studies in Nova Gorica, later he got himself a job in Italy, and very young he formed his family near Bovec. He could never forget his hometown, and so, a few years ago, he started photographing the beauties of the unspoiled nature that surrounded him only there.
The main motifs of Branko’s photographs are hidden to the superficial visitor to the nature: wild animals enjoying freedom in a realm that is only theirs, and the rivers that give life to the valley of Trenta. In his photographs Branko never strives for a high artistic value, he only wants to achieve the most exact photograph of the pureness of the nature and of the world where time runs differently than in the valleys deep below. Through his photography Branko uncovers bits of this world.
