Jaka Bulc, born in 1989, started casually taking pictures while hiking but now travels far to make photographs. His website features small series, sometimes with as little as two images, of painterly, dotted landscapes in icy color palettes. Manmade interventions command many of these natural scenes, with structures creating an oddity and loneliness that is increasingly familiar to Bulc’s post-contemporary landscape genre. His photographs initially present the machines and human barriers as complex in contrast to their earthy locations, when really the opposite is quite true.
Jaka Bulc graduated from the Faculty Of Social Sciences in 2012 at the University Of Ljubljana. He currently lives in Bled, Slovenia and works as a music journalist.
