Backlight season - Jurek Holzer

Jurek tells me that the pictures were taken with a 5 MP mobile phone camera and processed as raw files. It explains some of the special effects (Mickey Mouse!) that appear in the photos. No cool Iphone apps used. This is straight photography.

Jurek Holzer is a retired press photographer who worked many years for one of Sweden's biggest daily newspapers. In an interview made by Sanna Sjöswärd he said: "When I am retired I will only take pictures that nobody needs and that make me feel good". A good statement. Jurek has also revealed that Alexandr Rodtjenko is one of his preferred photographers and artists.
