STAR WOMEN: Silver & Gold   is a collection of hand painted, solarized silver gelatin prints. Every photograph is accompanied by a poem, explaining who the Stars are and their purpose of being. This project was born during my wakeful nights. While I was lying on my balcony and looking up to the sky, I imaged the stars coming down in female form. The beautiful creatures, ageless, shining in gold and silver, sweet and compassionate, leading us through the darkest nights…

STAR WOMEN
 

For many years
the sky has been our home
we are in love with the world
we always roam

Between the fragments
of astral dust
we hide our age
and all the mysteries

We are Star Women
your flame in the night
We are Star Women
loving and bright

Our hair is luminous
nipples on fire
we want, we desire
walk by your side
as your invisible guide

To be your soulmate
it was meant to be
we are here for thee
here for thee

****Star MATAHARI****

When stars are playing their games
and you sleep deep
me, 
your Matahari
 

come to answer your needs
to hold you between my thighs
touch your lips
touch your eyes

 

so you can dream about passion

make love to someone who you desire
and rise higher and higher

****Star HVALKA****

I cherish all huge creatures 
of this world

 

lighting their majesty
fearlessness
and vigorous motion

 

to them belongs my light
to them belongs my devotion

 

Star Hvalka will show you the way
to the moon and all stars above
with gracefulness and love

****Star SLNKA****

      

My hands are bright

his strength I share with you

in an old maze

 

I, Slnka, shine for you 

when you walk lonely

 

I shine for you

when you are the only

who is searching
 

****Star GEVIRKA***

In the high meadows
I will find your shy eyes
and follow you on roads

which no one knows but you

We will walk side by side
looking for a warm place to hide

 

I am your Gevirka, the Star
if you wish to reach me
don’t run too far

 

****Star LUPKA****

Wild souls
animals of pride and grace
those who don’t know you
want you to chase 


You, animals
who run mountains, hills
woods and rivers

 

Lupka knows well
that you earned to be called winners

The bravest you are in my light
no one can tame you
no one can hold you tight

****Star KAHOYNKA****

 

I, Kahoynka see your future
it’s burning on my chest
has thousands of strings
like a spider’s nest

Have faith in me
I will lead you there
where your heart should be

 

We might meet confusion

doubt or fear
roads will be dusty
bridges unstable and rusty


Keep your hand in mine
and in the end of the road
we'l
l have a sip of wine

 

****Star STROMKA****

I am Stromka
your strain, your root
I can hear your romantic whisper
your midnight flute

In the early morning
when everyone else sleeps
only for you

I will uncover my breast
at our secret nest

The runic pleasures are your remedy

for all the wounds you feel
come closer
I am here to heal

****Star DREVKA****

Talk to me
tell me all about your fears

 

Talk to me
I want to hold your warm tears

 

Talk to me
until I can carry

 

When dawns will paint the sky
crystal calix will offer us sherry
and you will say:
“Drevka, let’s again be merry”

I will kiss your forehead
when life asks from you too much

You
the smallest of the smallest

with strength of an elephant

 

I am your Star Eranka

your admirer

your light holder

 

I will carry you on my finger tip

on the corner of my lip

 

You

the bravest creatures

the magic of the cosmos

 

I will swim in mud with you

when the night is purple-blue

****Star FEMMKA****

I sing la femme song

when night sits in my bosom
I sing for you my woman
when there is no one to touch you
when you feel lonesome


cherchez la femme
cherchez la femme

Femmka’s lips whisper to yours

You, the cause of all bloody wars
You, the handle on the ancient doors
You, the secret behind men’s tears
You, the knife of all cut ears

I sing la femme song
for you, my madame
for you, my evening bird

who’s prayers will always be heard
