Looking for Hope stands in recognition of youth growing up in smaller places across the Balkans – struggling with identity and belonging. Through his photography, Matej recreates his own memories and situations so as to achieve emotional distance, perspective, and growth. Through this approach, he reconstructs his memories to better understand who he has become today, outside of the conservative constraints of Tenja.
