Miljenko Horvat: Gorgona
A photograph of the lighthouse and the dead seagull from Skagen, which Miljenko Horvat shot in 1963, during his visit to the further most north point of Denmark, was sent to Josip Vaništa and used as a photo-contribution to the anti-magazine Gorgona no. 7 from 1965.
This enigmatic, but almost emblematic image contains within itself the basic principle of not only Gorgonian photography, but also of Horvat's personal approach to the medium. And this is firstly a thought, and only far after it an actual photograph of the seaside with a lighthouse and a dead seagull. The photograph unambiguously has the built-in component of the "mysterious reality".
