About

MED Land project is a multi-faceted creative endeavour to produce photo-features and films documenting and interacting with the Mediterranean world. The project aims to portray the Mediterranean islands’ identity and charisma by presenting its potentials, sustainable patterns of survival, creativity, and social tolerance.

My name is Bojan Brecelj, freelance artist working in journalistic and art projects based on photography.

In 2016, I started working on the MED land project. I'm a Mediterranean native, a professional photographer, artist and journalist, sailing and diving the Mediterranean since childhood.

My first steps were portraits of the beat of life on the rivers of major civilisations (Nile, Ganges, Sepik in Papua New Guinea), all done from the boat perspective and published in prominent magazines and books.

In 2010, we started a series of portraying works in the Mediterranean area, creating foundations for the present project.

Also used in the project is Selffishstudios(a self-portrait tool and technique), which was developed and used in open-call projects for the last ten years.

The interviews and portraits in the project are actually co-created by the inhabitants who make self-portraits and tell their own story. This makes the project a group project with hundreds of participants who are also listed as authors. Our target is 200 interviews with inhabitants on many of the 189 islands, documented with photographs and video, which have been – or will be – published as stories online and in a book, presented in exhibitions and AV lectures, with the aim of creating connections and social networks.

 
If you dream about how and what to change in your life; if you are attracted by the Mediterranean islands; if you wish to support independent journalistic and art production of storytelling, with the focus on life practices of people who reflect the connection with space and develop sustainable forms of modern life and coexistence with the community, Patreon is the right place to meet!

It is a two-way relationship: your interest in contributing and collaborating is as important as any other part of the MED project for the recognition of the emerging paradigms for life on Earth (or, in this case, in the Mediterranean cosmos).












Goals

At this amount, basic costs for MED Land project essential activities, which are done on voluntarily bases, as now, postproduction (completing the stories from interviews, images and videos..), editing content on medland.life, maintaining and improving the site, networking, research, boat maintenance work.. and from May on on-location reporting, in 2020 will be secured!
