Photographer's Note

This is my first portrait photography that I'm posting here.

Couple of days ago, I went to a village (Radovo) near my town. This village, believe it or not, had population of mostly 10 people during the winter season!!! This woman was the oldest resident there, 80 years old. She invited us inside her poor house where she was living with her daughter and son-in-law.

She was so shy in front of the camera, she was saying to me all the time: "Stop shooting me, stop shooting me, I'll die soon, I don't need photographs at this age". I promised her I'll give her one photo the next time I visit this village.

I've never experienced such an authentic village life, they were baking a home bread and offered us some bread and a home made salty pie filled with leek, very delicious one, a traditional Macedonian pie. U can see the pie and a part of the stove in the back .

I couldn't decide which version to post, the color or the b&w, a hard choice. U can see the b&w version in workshop. I guess with this photo, I'll start a small village life series ...
