Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that's never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? While some see them as the crazy ones, I see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

After an artistic journey from more classic art forms such as drawing, painting and writing to the urban art form graffiti, Jamar moved on to pursue photography. The urge to catch moments and impressions had always been present. Photography ultimately showed to be the perfect expression of his creative mind. The mix of his previous interests do not make Jamar a photographer but rather a maker of pictures. He does not work according to any formal rules but relies upon his instincts to create art. This form of pure and passionate photography delivers honest, real images. From this starting point, he has specialized in model photography. His pictures balance between fashion and art. Jamar likes projects with a twist, his pictures will not turn yellow in another cliched photo album, but will continue to live and breathe.

    Jovan Todorovic says:

    "it is time for a testimonial on one of the more interesting streams on flickr. It dwells in fashion, glamour, street, portrait, documentary, commercial, experimental and what not... but is in essence a fantastic journey through the aesthetics of character; beauty of what is emotional: photographs of cinematic movements; and most of all stories of people, wishes, alter egos, dreams, loneliness and all that is human.

    Sincerely,
