stories and secrets ...
“ Stone is a thoughtful and emotional being - just like plants, animals and man. ”Nikola Tesla, 1898.
“ The best of all is that by discovering a secret in nature we can descover the others! They are not hidden, they are around us, but we are blind and deaf to them. If we emotionally attach to them, they will come to us. ”Nikola Tesla, 1937.
“ Stones ceases to be the stones when a man think about it and see a picture of the cathedral in it. ”Antoine de Saint Exipery
Born in Belgrade. Paediatrician by vocation. Apart from her profession she is involved in theatre, music and writing books for both adults and children. For the past eight years she has explored stone in a unique way.
" It all started in 2007, unexpectedly and without any preparations" says Mirjana Herzog." At the seaside I saw a stone with an imprint of life in our world. It was no longer just a stone! Now, after eight years, I think I can "read" any stone! Sometimes an image in the stone seems more beautiful than the one in "our world". The stone world is sophisticated and should be explored. It is near us; by the sea, on river banks, by the streams, in small and big cities, mountains, yards....everywhere.
I make photografs, yet I am not a photographer. I am simply a good "reader" of what can be "read" in the stone. Pictures are entitled by the projection of what I see, but they offer a possibility for everyone else to see them in their own way. I think that joy and excitement I get from this work comes from its huge diversity. In stone lies an imprint of a world with strength and aesthetics I haven't known before."
With her friend she founded a team which help realise this project. Members go team: Ivan Ilich, Dejan Radojkovich, Dushica Zivkovich, Igor Ilich and David Herzog.

"Mislim da svako od nas ima neki nepoznati svet, u koji može da "upadne" i da ga osvetli za sebe, a i za druge.
Život je samo jedna sjajna igra!
Možda nam je igra mnogo više potrebna, nego što se trudimo da po svaku cenu promenimo i poboljšamo svoje živote.
Možda je samo igra dovoljna!
Čovek je biće igre.
