On the Road / Sulla Strada / Unterwegs

Viewers are often surprised by the ruthlessness with which Igor Kovac’s photographs capture life on the road, on the go, on the move. His snapshots tell stories that need no further explanation; his portraits often suggest complex biographies behind the images. Situational photography defines the majority of his works: mostly taken unnoticed to the protagonists they depict, they always reveal the eye of a documentarian who never shies away from portraying the diverse aspects of poverty, sorrow, frailty, humor, and joy.

Igor Kovac is a self-taught photographer and has been capturing images on film since he was fifteen years old. The writings of F. M. Dostoyevsky and films of A. Tarkovsky left a lasting impression on him in his youth and went on to serve as a source of inspiration for his artistic work. He comes across the subjects for his photographs during lengthy travels in the south of Europe, Italy in particular.
