“A Day in the Life” with Photographer Aleksandar Antonijevic

Aleksandar Antonijevic
This is me at Toronto Image Works, where I get all of my works printed and framed, checking the prints for my latest exhibit before they go to framing.

“Aleksandar Antonijevic has been a true artist since childhood. As an emotional and intense person he is very sensitive to other people’s feelings, and has always been an observer – able to notice even the smallest characteristics of someone’s behaviour. This brought him great depth as a dancer and gave him a unique ability to understand the language of visual imagery and the hidden beauty of details. When he started photographing seven years ago, it was a natural progression to use this extraordinary depth of experience and knowledge to explore and document the magic of the human body.

I have always admired how passionate and dedicated he was to his dance, and now he has translated those same high standards to his photography, creating wonderful images. He makes me so proud and I feel very lucky to have him in my life.”

Here I’m cycling the boardwalk, a place where I often find my centre and peace. Especially when I am stressed or going through a rough time, it grounds me and reminds me how small we are in the grand scheme of things

This is me shooting Sonia Rodriguez, Principal Dancer of The National Ballet of Canada. When I am in a studio setting and working with an artist of her caliber, it is when I am most alive.

Here I’m in my sacred and treasured place, surrounded by art, in front of my computer, where I live with my images, sometimes for months. It’s here that I try to understand what they are telling me and how to sculpt that into a coherent visual “sentence”.

What neighbourhood do you live in?

I live in the upper Beach, a place I love and appreciate. It certainly has a different vibe then downtown Toronto.

What do you do?

I am a fine art photographer, documenting anything that inspires me: people, theatre and dance, nudes, portraits.
