“There is no better answer than view. With every single sunrise and sunset, even rain or snow I can see the beauty of the difference each day. You can feel elements of the nature, but the most satisfying things is happiness and embracing the shining from faces of the guests. That’s why I love to work at the UFO Observation Deck.”


“The sound of birds and the peacefulness in the morning when the city is still asleep, that’s when and why I like to be up here. It remembers me of when I was younger.”

We Know Where we Are The bella vista today seen from The UFO Observation Deck is one of the biggest tourist attractions of Bratislava. This one viewpoint in the middle of the city depicts one general view, but it gets experienced completely differently. What is often seen is a particularly fragmented part of the whole package that calls itself the ‘view’. How do we perceive these sweeping views of the kind you might see from up high? U LO

If The Slipper Fits, Then Wear It. If It Doesn’t Fit, You’ll Still Have To Wear It Whenever I was going inside in a household in Bratislava I was asked what size my feet were and consequently provided with a pair of slippers. Taking care of your guests feet is something that struck me as such a simple but kind gesture. Wearing them at a strangers place is an interesting way of connecting, and even made me feel somewhat at home in a completely different country. Could introducing guest slippers mean something for the meeting between different cultures? S

Huso Huso Found Near Donau The Huso Huso fish is known by the Slovak people as Vyza, and is loved for its caviar. Overfishing and the building of new bridges forced the fish to look for a new, and different way of living. It found its way to live around the obstacles life gave him.

Sugar Instead of Glucose-Syrup For decades, a commonly held belief in Eastern Europe was that the quality of their supermarket products was inferior to those same products sold in the rest of Europe. International companies, when confronted, have responded they are just adjusting to national-tastes. Just a few kilometers from Bratislava is the small Austrian town of Hainburg. The parking lot of the supermarket is filled with Slovakian number plates. Here, day after day, Slovakians show their preference to consume products that are not “adjusted,� for example, by changing the sugar found in Coca-Cola for the eastern variant of glucose-fructose-syrup.

TEA PARTY Trains are filled with elderly women during certain hours. This might have something to do with public transport being free for the elderly. Watching them on the train, I noticed they where looking for comfort. Whether they are touching the material of the seats, fiddling with something in their hand, reading a magazine or gazing out of the window they all seem to be coping with being part of life, but at the same time not.

Unface Values ‘One perceives the other in a different way than the other perceives him.’ The thing that struck me most in Bratislava was the emotional resonance of its citizens. That here, in this city, the honest emotional values are different than my emotional values. How can I relate to a citizenry when we have nothing in common? How are we related? How do we find these common emotional states? I come from Rotterdam, a city which strives for, and is known for ‘straight-tothe-point’ communication, where every emotional change stands out: everything is visible. These photographs investigating Slovakian habits give insight into how honest emotions can be perceived as opposite, causing frictions. Bratislava and Rotterdam actually strive for the same honesty, but within a different set of emotional values.

Technopol Every morning I got off the bus at a stop called Technopol, a huge panel housing area in Bratislava. Housing blocks which are a towering, highly visible reminder of the Communist era. With people making undefined movements in front of these houses, I present the inhabitants in contrast to this static architecture. MA
