Like Stories I this series is composed by a set of more or less unconnected single photos taken at various everyday accidental opportunities and also planned trips since 2009. The most obvious difference between the two collections is the use of colour and themes, which bring a bit more lightness of content and internal playfulness to this collection. These images mostly speak about a human and his life, which is caught into everyday hustle and bustle of the city architecture and inside different social layers. Beside light and colours the play of contrasts is achieved with opposites between the artificial order represented by lines of modern buildings and urban constructions on one hand and organic shapes of human beings caught in these places on the other hand. I believe that graphic minimalism, compositional precision and consideration of rules increase the efficiency of meaning and stories in these photos.
