Interview | Belgrade Streets Photography

Check out this interview that I gave recently to Sara and the photos that she selected to go with the words. And take a look at her own great blog, Arhitektura + at


I’m proud to present one of my blogger friends’ efforts here and invite you to see some awesome work by Belgrade Streets photography. I invited Andy to answer a few questions about his work that I have been following on his blog. I found it hard to pick my favorite photo on his blog so here is a couple I have chosen that I think sums up Belgrade Streets so well. A fresh, personal view of the city that is completely honest, and confounding to much of Serbia’s reputation. Great to see photographers, under their own motivation, creating their own work under their own voice, and finding ways to get it seen on their terms. I’m looking forward to seeing more from this photographer. Here is 10 @ 10 with Andy.

sometimes dreams come true

September 2012, marked one year of belgradestreets.

This post is a thank you to those good people at Komshe who have recently published my book, belgradestreets, which features images taken from this blog.

I would particularly like to thank Branko Andrić, the Managing Director of Komshe d.o.o. for backing the idea, and taking the book to market, Ivan Grujić for his design work, Dimitrije Stamenković for his work placing the books in stores across Belgrade, and everyone at Komshe.

And a special thank you to Zafiris Lampadaridis whose chance encounter with my blog in its early days, led to a cup of coffee…that gave birth to the idea for a book.

A moment I never imagined would be possible.

I am very grateful to Komshe for their support and confidence in belgradestreets.

Their guidebooks have provided much inspiration and much-needed background as I have explored belgradestreets.

I commend them to you.

Thank you for reading, liking and commenting on my posts. And my apologies for the rather self indulgent nature of this one!

It has been a wonderful journey and it is far from over.

I am looking forward to continuing to share belgradestreets with you.

ivan, branko and dimitrije
