The exhibition includes Stanko Abadžic’s silver gelatin prints of the nude, a sensitive subject that Abadžic frequently studies. In these works, the nude is rendered innocent as Abadžic emphasizes light and shadow in relationship to the female form. Finding solace in beauty, Abadžic creates harmonious opportunities for stillness and romance.
Stanko Abadžic is a Croatian photographer specializing in black and white photography. He began his career as a photojournalist. When war broke out, Abadžic’s family fled to Germany and later relocated to Prague where his work was influenced by the wake of Henri Cartier-Bresson and André Kertész. In 2002, Abadžic returned to his homecountry and settled in Zagreb where he works to this day. Abadžic has exhibited at the Mimara Museum in Zagrem and the Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik.
