The monograph
“The Geometry of Life”

Since the advent and widespread adoption of digital photography, creatives have been on a roller coaster ride of evolution and adaptation, the changing medium of image-making transforming creative output. One can easily choose to incorporate any techniques and filters in their art. Koci’s visual and stylistic consistency of vision was the fairy dust that added magic to the content that inundated the new digital platforms, depicted in The Geometry of Life.

The photographer's vision
“I feel deeply attracted to the surrealism of everyday life and the poetry of ordinary things […] that can be used to create my own reality, my photographic world. After all, photography is [nothing but] a lie”.
