Last year Vladimir hosted Peter Fettich in Kasarna, where he exhibited a series of more than 100 hand printed photographs taken in Fažana from 2013 on, taking over the whole space. This year he’s coming back with his debut photo book RISPECT THE BOUL!, that premieres in the Fažana DIY skatepark on Friday 27.9. at noon.
It’s in your face and it is unapologetic.
At a glance, his subject and narrative seem simple, even carefree. BW photographs depicting a scene… the making of DIY skateparks and the subculture behind it. But this is his home turf. The spectator dives into the imagery fast and hard. In deviation from mass branding or mainstream influences, the DIY scene is full of friendship, laughs, pain and sweat.
I feel, as if the author shifts me to places I know very well, but have never seen or observed in such a way before.
