Nomad or Antinomad?
Interview with Roman Ondak
Are you a nomad or antinomad?
Tell us something about the antinomads. Who are these people?
Back in 2000 I approached most of my relatives, friends and acquaintances with the simple question ‘Do you feel to be a nomad or rather an anti-nomad?’, and all those answering ‘anti’ were offered to be photographed in their favorite environment, for the purpose to become a postcard motif.
At which favorite place would you like to be photographed?
At my home studio… 🙂
Do you like postcards?
Do you keep copies of the antinomad postcards?
I still have some spare copies stored in the box. But what I like about the postcards is that, after they vanish from the previous show, they again reappear in the next one.
