Matej Milenkovic was born on 27th of May 1996. he studied cinematography and photography in the Academy of Arts situated in Belgrade. He had couple of exhibitions in Belgrade, including one after workshop with known French photographer Klavdij Sluban.

For his series of pictures he was greatly inspired by the poet Charles Baudelaire, who wrote “Magnetic Horror”:

"Beneath this sky, so livid and strange,

Tormented like thy destiny,

What thoughts within thy spirit range

Themselves?—O libertine reply."



—With vain desires, for ever torn

Towards the uncertain, and the vast,

And yet, like Ovid—I'll not mourn—

Who from his Roman Heaven was cast.



O heavens, turbulent as the streams,

In you I mirror forth my pride!

Your clouds, which clad in mourning, glide,


Are the hearses of my dreams,

And in your illusion lies the hell,

Where in my heart delights to dwell.
