Sonja Jež, Uncles from the Background, Seča, 2019

My name is Sonja and I'm 43 years old. I have been visually impaired since 2005, with 5% residual vision. I retired at the age of 28 due to my visual impairment. This sudden change opened the doors to all my artistic ambitions. At the age of 32, I moved from my home town to Nova Gorica, where I was able to realise all my ambitions, which I am still nurturing and increasing day by day. First it was painting, then dancing, then a small role on stage, I became passionate about photography, and finally I fell in love with film - directing and editing - where imagination has no limits.
