Born in Croatia, Stanko Abadžic established a career as a photographer, primarily as a photojournalist. After the Croatian war of independence broke out in 1991, he spent several years in Germany, unable to establish residency. It was after his move to Prague in 1995 that his artistry developed, finding inspiration in his exploration of his new environment. Abadžic’s photographs are striking in their depiction of his slightly off-kilter, yet never contrived subject matter, and his mastery of light and shadows.
