Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, is not my hometown, but I do not love it any less because of it. It is a true European metropolis with over 2 million inhabitants with most diverse origins. It is an old, beautiful and friendly city, open to all its visitors. But it is also often said that Belgrade is a city with a dark soul. What I love the most about Boris Mrđa’s photography is that he managed to capture Belgrade not as a dark city, but on the contrary, bathed with night lights in the most interesting ways possible. That is why I decided to feature his work (which he politely ceded) here at FSC.
Boris Mrđa is a professional photographer living and working in Belgrade, Serbia. Photography was part of his life ever since he can remember. Started snapping as a kid during the 80’s with Russian made Smena 8 and gradually moved on to Zenit, Practica and Pentax as the years passed. Today he is using wide range of digital cameras and lenses, and combination of both wireless flashes and studio strobes. Working in balance between his “first love” – landscape photography (both urban and nature) and “job demanded” – concept/studio photography, he can proudly say that over the course of years he has tried himself in almost all and every aspect of photographic art. There is more of Mrđa’s amazing work at his DA page and at his blog.
