Berlin-based photographer, Aleksander Stojanov, creates large-format works, exploring themes of fragility, femininity and beauty.

"Before discovering analogue photography, my big passion was analogue and modular synthesisers and tape delays. As I never was good at expressing myself with words, I was tweaking the knobs of the synths and creating soundscapes with my friends from the band Coma Stereo. About 5 years ago the old 70s synthesisers started to collect dust in Slovenia as I moved to Berlin where I received my first Mamiya RB67 as a gift. From that moment on, photography became my new passion. Nowadays, I am shooting mostly with large-format film with old lenses and making prints in the darkroom. I think the slower photography is, the more it suits me and the easier it is to recreate the image in my head."
