Hi. My name is Mare Milin. I was born in 1973 in Zadar, Croatia. After high school graduation, I moved to Zagreb in 1992, and studied product design. During my studies, in 1994 I started to learn the art of photography at the university, and very soon got my first job as a theater photographer. Since then, that kind of story just went on and on. I have never become anybody else.
After 25 years, I am still a professional photographer, and since 2002 and 2006 a member of important artistic associations in Croatia. I have won several prizes, was a part of a certain number of exhibitions, worked for various agencies, theatres, dance companies, publishing houses (music, magazines, books) and all sorts of clients, however, mainly from the fashion and advertising world, since my primary interest is people- portraiture photography.
Still, my soul sometimes gets overwhelmed by the things I do daily. Then I leave my camera for a while and again, not thinking at all, I find myself taking pictures of the surroundings and nature, without people in them, in my way, treating open space as a room.
I will take photos as long as I breathe and feel.
Sara Horvatić was born in Varaždin, Croatia in 1998. She is currently a student, getting her master's degree in Filmmaking and Film and TV Production at VERN' University. Sara is the author of several short documentaries and has also worked on short fiction films, short documentaries, fiction films and music videos in various roles (production, directing, cinematography, behind the scenes post-production). As a photographer, she has exhibited her work in various group exhibitions outside of Croatia. In 2017, she had her first solo photographic exhibition Nestvarnost istine / Unreality of Truth, and in 2021. her second solo exhibition Dnevnik tišine / The Diary of Silence. At her university, Sara manages the project of Movie Nights at VERN', volunteers in PK NATATOR, she mentors in photography, marketing and social media at MFF School in the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and is a member of an international photography contest MIC-VIS as well as a recipient of numerous awards.
