Although Zlatko is known for his performances (his k9 compassion series leading the show), I hereby present two photographs from a series intended to dignify his fellow colleagues and artists who never aimed to be apart of the mainstream, to become a brand, to sell their art. Some of us borderline the idea of being marginal and/or being apart of the market. Apart from each one considerations, I do believe ethics and the strength of the work are above all. I publish these photographs not to applaud this so called marginal artists but to speak of the idea that not all of us need to be published, loved or appreciate to feel that work is successful or accomplished its purposes. It depends on why you do what you do and whether or not the reasons to be apart of the market are purely capitalist ones.
