Landscapes

© Anuar Patjane Floriuk

I’m a social anthropologist and photographer born in Mexico. As long as I can remember, I’ve always had a special affinity towards photographs and cameras, but I don´t know the origin of this affinity.

I believe in pure and unlimited creative power and try to avoid all stereotypes regarding what I do with my camera and with the photographs I create. Each and every photograph is unique, unrepeatable and endless; so should be their interpretations. I always look for images depicting strong meanings and emotions and do what I can to create visual stories with them, stories that show the power of empathy… stories that focus the attention into places and moments which usually escape unnoticed. I can not photograph the staged, the arranged, I just cant. I need reality flowing, that is my element and that is what I enjoy photographing.

The best thing we can do as photographers is to give the world the tools to create some meaning and help ourselves and others observe the different perspectives of what we usually take for granted.

Andric’s style is exceptionally clean, intriguingly hyper-realistic and always a combination of effortless visual simplicity and refined mood. His portfolio spans from still life to landscape, from portraiture to highly complex conceptual work, CGI and visual consulting. His imagery is often infused with understated humour, but always elegant and iconic. “A good image should always leave some questions unanswered, remaining interesting in a new way every time we see it,” he says.

With an obsessive attention to detail, Andric has been doing nearly all of his own post-production work since 1997. Although he uses CGI routinely, he believes that shooting as much as possible from real life is the key to creating compelling photography since even the most “impossible” image must be anchored in reality for it’s strength. He reserves the post-production phase for enhancing, modulating or creating atmosphere: the resulting imagery is always effortless.
