Washington, D.C. -- Photographer and trained architect Vladimir Pajkic will launch the first-ever public showing of his work called Formae LucisÓ or Forms of Light in Latin at RPM Capitol Hill on February 7th. Approximately 50 people are expected to attend a wine and cheese reception from 7-9 PM to celebrate the opening and PajkicŪs new website www.formaelucis.com. The black-and-white photographs are all un-cropped so there is no editing of the immediate experience of that very moment,Ó according to Pajkic (pronounced pie-kitch). He uses a mixes media process to produce the images involving both hand developing and elements of architectural printing. Images range from graffiti on a door in the Jewish Ghetto in Rome to a group of elderly playing cards in the streets of Shanghai.
"Most of my work was taken during my travels, but the place is almost unimportant, " says Pajkic. "The theme is the exploration of light and the cities, events, and people it captures. It Ūs almost a universal language."
Pajkic, who was born and raised in Croatia, earned a Bachelors of Architecture at Cornell University and a Masters of Architecture from Princeton University. He recently moved to Washington, D.C. where he is a practicing architect.
